We have been offering free counselling services to survivors of physical, sexual, and financial abuse for four years now. The topics of Gender Based Violence (GBV) and Learner Pregnancies are more than relevant in Namibia, a country where over half of girls virginities are lost through rape. Even with this prevalence, these are topics that are not much discussed in society.

That is why we want to contribute to the visibility of these topics in the Namibian press.
