Where are we now?
  • Survivors are still dispossessed and disempowered
  • Vulnerable, poor and in the minority
  • “Non-violent co-existence” not reconciliation
  • Supported, for the time being, by FARG

Where do we want to be?
  • A world where the rights and dignity of survivors is respected
  • Self-sufficiency and independence
  • An empowered community
  • Rebuilt lives
slide8
How do we get there?
  • United Nations
  • “Requests the Secretary-General to continue to encourage the relevant agencies, funds and programmes of the United Nations system to implement resolution 59/137 expeditiously, inter alia, by providing assistance in the areas of education for orphans, medical care and treatment for victims of sexual violence, including HIV-positive victims, trauma and psychological counselling, and skills training and microcredit programmes aimed at promoting self- sufficiency and alleviating poverty.” (UN Resolution 62/96)
  • International NGOs
  • International Development Agencies
slide9
What is success?
  • Can we ever know when we have won?
  • Can we learn from failure, when we can't afford to fail? When success is life or death.
  • “It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be...”
