Be The VOICE

Gender Based Violence is 'any act that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, emotional or psychological harm or suffering to an individual - including threats of such acts, coercion, arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life', simply on the basis of their gender. Gender Based Violence is deeply rooted in gender based discrimination.

What We Do

VOICE identifies and trains athletes and community role models to play a more active role in fostering safe and inclusive environments. We provide ongoing support to empower individuals to drive change in their respective communities.

Why Focus On Sports

Sport plays an influential role in our lives. It also plays a huge role in shaping how we socialize, create friendships and alliances. Sport has the power to shape and guide inclusivity and build a sense of community for those who have been otherwise marginalized and discriminated against.
