Gender Based Violence

‘’The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do’’

Steve Jobs

The GBV Charitable Trust Group was first established in September 2014, in Nairobi, Kenya and has taken in over 1092 infants and children whom have been subjected to rape, sex trafficking, child prostitution and vicious assaults. The Trust also provides long term assistance and sponsorship to women whom have succumbed to sexual, domestic and gender based violence (GBV). 

The work of the Trust began when our Founders were on a Medical placement in Nairobi, and was stationed at a city slum mission hospital. On the fourth day in Kenya, one of our founders were hand holding a 9 year old girl, through her C section. The child was 8 months pregnant after gang rape, and just 27 kgs when she was taken her into theatre.

We have rescued countless children from sex trafficking and prostitution. More disturbingly, there is a huge black market in Nairobi for newborn infants, very commonly sold to be sacrificed in Tanzania. Our work commences with intelligence gathering, and progresses to rescue missions, emergency surgical and medical care, long term rehabilitation and we provide permanent housing and education to the world’s most vulnerable children. 

What we do is not pretty or easy to discuss. It is a permanent, a humble and a voluntary commitment that the members of our Trust have towards these children and women, and we MUST continue working to break the deafening silence on the topic of rape and
abuse. We are eliminating the stigma that is consistently associated to rape victims.

Our proven model of rehabilitation has a 100 % success rate in ending sexual and gender based violence for the women and children we take into our program.

What we do is terribly hard for many to comprehend. Rape and GBV are a global problem. There is not a country in the world that infants, children and women do not, or have not suffered rape or sexual assault.

The global statistics are devastating – but so is the brutality of rape and dealing with its aftermath, which is the core of our work.

Our youngest child admitted for sexual assault is a 3 day old girl. 4 months old is the youngest female we have admitted for post rape reconstruction and repair. Our youngest boy has been 9 months old. Children who were unable to remain safe in their previous environments have remained sponsored by, and in the care of our Charitable Trusts, NFP companies and community based organisations.

Many of our women and children are sponsored into private schools, or into our training programs after receiving long term rehabilitation and care in our safe houses that we operate or support in Nairobi, Narok, Murgang’a, Kajiado, Busia, Siaya and Trans-Nzoia counties.

What we do may not be pretty, but what we do, and what we achieve, works. 100 % of the time. This is a huge fight, but it is absolutely one worth fighting for. Our persistence is changing the world, and saving the current and future generations from the cycle of abuse. Break the silence on rape and abuse.All donations are 100 % tax deductible in Australia, Kenya and East Africa, with our tax registrations in Germany and the Ireland in progress.
