The 1000 Women Trust is a registered Trust (IT738/2014) focusing on fundraising and creating awareness for domestic and gender-based violence (GBV) and abuse. We believe that if women have access to knowledge, skills, and resources, they will find their own solutions to combat violence against women and girls. We are committed to ending GBV and femicide in our society by empowering, inspiring, educating, and equipping women and girls through various projects, grants, training initiatives. We are also actively lobbying for greater protection, economic empowerment, compensation, and homes for women and girls affected by GBV through various campaigns.
The 1000 Women Trust is a Women’s Organisation that aims to raise awareness around Gender-Based Violence, rape, and abuse and mobilise resources. These resources make it possible for us to assist women-led organisations with grants and skills development. This enables them to support, raise awareness, and furnish opportunities for survivors of gender-based violence. We empower, inspire, educate, lobby and equip women.
