Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) is defined as violence that targets individuals or groups on the basis of their gender. Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) counselling at NAPPA is provided by qualified Social Workers. This counselling informs people about the damage caused by SGBV and promotes self-esteem in individuals who have experienced it. Referrals are also made to appropriate organisations so they can receive the right kind of support.
SGBV counselling is available for anyone who has been, is currently, or feels they are at risk of SGBV. NAPPA also works with SGBV perpetrators as we believe some people can change their behaviour if given appropriate support to do so.
