We Will Speak Out is a coalition of people of faith – individuals, churches and organisations – ​with survivors in the centre – that speak out, stand up, collaborate, share knowledge, challenge paradigms, act and campaign to stop sexual and gender-based violence.

This WVLSA project will contribute to the decrease in the prevalence of GBV and femicide and mitigate its impact by strengthening civil society in KZN through building on past networks to establish an updated provincial database and geo-map of all CSOs working in the area of GBV and femicide, and a skills audit for targeted capacity building. It will establish regional networks that can also contribute to regional active rapid response teams, for continuity of care through referral systems that include diverse actors, including the faith sector.
