Kuhluka seeks to eradicate gender-based violence, and sets up shelters to provide support for the survivors of domestic violence.“We want women to know that they can go to a place where they will be received with care and tenderness, and attended to by doctors and members of the police.” Josina Z Machel - Founder
Kuhluka Movement's primary prevention programs seek to facilitate change by addressing the underlying causes and drivers of GBV at a population level. Such programs have traditionally included initiatives to economically empower girls and women, enhanced legal protections for GBV, enshrining women’s rights and gender equality within national legislation and policy, and other measures to promote gender equality.
“This situation is precarious indeed. The only way we can change this is to join together in solidarity, with the understanding that we need each other, in order to affect change. We cannot value our independence, our abilities, our success and achievements without acknowledging other women.”
