The Shukumisa Mission
Our mission is to ensure that South African society takes the problem of rape seriously and does not tolerate stereotyped or prejudicial attitudes about rape; that civil society organisations are well resourced and engage in joint advocacy initiatives, and services to rape survivors are well resourced and well implemented; that laws, policies and systems are strengthened and improved; that conviction rates for rape are increased and there are more appropriate sentences for rapists.
These advocacy activities are divided into four themes:
1. Strengthening Law and Policy
2. Strengthening the Criminal Justice System
3. Strengthening the Gender Based Violence Sector
4. Strengthening the Shukumisa Campaign and Coalition
