Who We Are
A Few Words
Musasa is a non-governmental organisation that was set up in 1988 to respond to violence against women and girls. We work to prevent and respond to Gender Based Violence (GBV), providing relief to survivors of GBV in Zimbabwe through a multidimensional approach that speaks to our four pillars of Musasa i.e Prevention, Response, Advocacy, and MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning and Accountability). We implement programmes which help to change attitudes, behaviour and the general responsiveness of communities and community leadership to issues of violence against women and girls. Our efforts culminated in the passing of the Domestic Violence Act in 2007 and continue to impact the policy direction of Zimbabwe in the area of GBV. Our services include a 24-hour toll free line, counselling, legal support and shelter services.
