KAFA (Enough) Violence & Exploitation
KAFA (Enough) Violence & Exploitation is a feminist, secular non-governmental civil society organization that seeks to create a society that is free of the social, economic and legal patriarchal structures that discriminate against women in Lebanon. KAFA has been aiming to eliminate all forms of gender-based violence and exploitation since its establishment in 2005.
It seeks to realize substantive gender equality through the adoption of a combination of different approaches, such as:
- Advocacy for law reform and the introduction of new laws and policies
- Influencing public opinion, practices and mentality
- Conducting research and training; and empowering women and children victims of violence, and providing them with social, legal, and psychological support
Our focus areas are: family violence; exploitation and trafficking in women, especially in migrant domestic workers and women in prostitution; and child protection, particularly from sexual abuse and family violence.
