About Usikimye

We shall address child abuse and the factors that instigate abuse.

We also aim to engage/put pressure on government organizations responsible for addressing gender/ violence against women and lawmakers and bring about legislative change and support to victims of gender based violence through non-violent, collaborative engagement. We aim at combating gender-based violence and also hold the government accountable for the policies they put in place.
