Genderforce is a global non-political, not-for-profit and non-religious women’s security organization. Our headquarter is in Belgium and we are registered in the United Kingdom as a Community Interest Company. Genderforce is established as a gender balanced security organization in regards to both its activities and in its construction.
Until now society has not had a clear and comprehensive solution for fighting and preventing acts of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in conflict and post-conflict situations. When training and awareness raising just isn’t enough to prevent these atrocities, sometimes the only suitable response to severe misdoings and threats is through deployment of a professional security organization.
Our mission is to:
- prevent and combat acts of SGBV;
- create an environment where women and girls are protected from SGBV aimed specifically at them or towards actors working for their empowerment, where the perpetrators of such violence are brought to justice; and
- support women’s empowerment and equal participation, through increased security and limitation of risks, that leads to moderation and accelerated conflict resolution.
