How we work

At SAFFI we Believe That:

  • Religious Leaders and faith communities have a pivotal role to play in addressing VAW.
  • Collaboration between the faith sector and Collaboration between the faith sector and domestic violence advocates / service providers is central in our quest to break the cycle of VAW.
  • Victims / Survivors should Not have to carry the extra burden of having to decide between their safety and their faith.
  • Perpetrators must be held accountable for their abusive behaviour and offered culturally informed zero tolerance restorative justice interventions.
  • Children must grow up in a society where honour and respect for the human dignity of women & each person is the order of the day.
