This month, the customers of Ticketmaster can help women victims of sexual violence
The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the ten poorest countries in the world. In Goma, the capital of North Kivu, the armed groups, the illegal diamond market and ongoing armed conflict have made this city the most insecure in Africa. Women and children are the most vulnerable group. Currently, Goma is the city with the most cases of rape in the world; every month, 1,152 women are abused.
The organization assists women victims of violence in Goma and facilitates their psycho-affective recovery and socio-economic inclusion in order to have the possibility of having a dignified life again. The integral support that these women and young people will receive is focused on 3 axes: education, so that they can go school and find a job; the sensitization of communities to gender violence to exercise the rights to social denunciation in families and communities. And, finally, the collective empowerment to promote change in the attitudes that perpetuate violence against women in Congolese society.
All the customers who want to, can add €1 to their ticket and provide comprehensive support to women and teenagers victims of sexual violence on the streets of Goma, offering them the possibility of a dignified life free of violence and their socio-economic inclusion.
