All Shukumisa members agree to adhere to the following values:
Shukumisa is a coalition of organisations. Members are expected to be proactive and initiate and lead advocacy and other actions that address sexual violence. The coalition is as strong as its members make it to be.
The members are the decision makers of Shukumisa, similar to the structure of a Voluntary Association. The steering committee is the decision making body which operates on behalf of the members. The steering committee is elected annually by the members. The coordinator as well as member organisations operating as funding conduits are accountable to the steering committee.
Any civil society organisation or individual with a demonstrated interest in addressing sexual violence may apply to become a member of Shukumisa by cooperating with the terms of reference and by filling out the membership form.
Membership is approved by at least four steering committee members. After approval the new member will be added to the Shukumisa database and email group. The steering committee reserves the right to reject any application for membership at their own discretion.
