Global Strategies is proud to partner with Panzi Foundation and University of Montreal in a six-year initiative to promote women’s rights and fight sexual violence called Tumaini – Health and rights of women, adolescents and children. The project, translated from Swahili as “Hope” and funded by Global Affairs Canada, will support Panzi Foundation in its fight against sexual and gender-based violence. The Tumaini Project aims to improve the delivery of health services and promote policies, legal frameworks and services to help survivors of sexual violence. 

Since 2012, Global Strategies has partnered with Panzi Foundation to improve the delivery of medical care for survivors of gender-based violence. Our role in the Tumaini Project will be to share our expertise combining grassroots community outreach and novel digital innovations to ensure that every rape survivor has access to life-saving medications to prevent HIV, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted infections. We are proud to continue and grow our partnership with Dr. Mukwege and the Panzi Foundation.
