Describe your workshop/presentation (300-500 words):
1. Project Global Helplines: towards a World Wide Women’s Safety Web of accurate helplines
Currently across the globe
There is NO respected global website that lists accurate, vetted, safe resources for victims of domestic and sexual violence in every country across the world.
There are many organizations and volunteers who attempt to provide helpline information.
There is no global organization responsible for collecting and constantly updating reliable and accurate helpline information on every continent.
We think such a website is a necessary part of integrated services for victims of Gender-based Violence
GNWS proposes to build on the European website https://www.wave-network.org/find-help/women-s-helplines-list. to ensure that helplines for every country in the world are easy to access in a crisis.
We discuss the organizational structure and conditions needed in the regions to feed and communicate this global website. With our work in this workshop we are able to finish the project plan that we need to raise sufficient funds.
2. Burning issues in each continent. GNWS members present a paper about their vision of burning issues in their continent and invite participants to fill in the gaps with the result of having a more complete picture at the end of the conference.
