South Africa has “globally unprecedented” levels of violence against women (Medical Research Council, 2009).

Oxfam is partnering with Rape Crisis to support their peer education programme, which trains high school students as peer counsellors and educators to support rape survivors and fight sexual violence in their schools and communities.
