SOFIA Program

Coordinator: Ms Phumzile Ndlovu

The program mobilizes women from various faith communities and creates safe spaces for them to deliberate on issues that affect women. The major issues are around gender injustices, various forms of violence, femicide, environmental degradation and the problems around degradation of the family and the moral fibre, as well as issues around sexual reproductive health rights. This program focuses on women and how they can support each other in addressing issues that affect them, and also addresses men on the male care givers project and how they can contribute positively to promote gender justice.
