Project Empower, is an organisation that is working towards strengthening community responsiveness to HIV and has a range of interventions directed to achieving organisational goals. One of these interventions is the Psycho-Social Support (PSS) which is provided to survivors of sexual assault. In this regard, Project Empower is in partnership with an organisation called MATCH which refers survivor to the organisation. The survivors are seen by our social workers in health facilities and during home visits.

Our Social workers work with   survivors of sexual violence using their structured and carefully designed PSS model. Depending on the needs for other social services, social workers can further refer their clients to further assistance such as HIV counselling, Department of Social Development, Department of Social Justice, Department of Home Affairs etc.   This is the repetition of what is been said above. Furthermore, social workers conduct random awareness talks about Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in facilities they work in as part of the one stop service provision.
