||Children, women and men especially orphaned, HIV positive and economically vulnerable women and children.
||SWAGAA's two main programs are counselliing and education.
We promote attitudinal and behaviour change on gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS, using mass media, dialogues, training sessions and school debates.
We offer counselling services to survivors of abuse and their families. We also strive to reduce women's vulnerability to abuse through promoting their economic independence via income generating projects.
SWAGAA has been instrumental through advocacy and lobbying in initiating the process of the passing of the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Act. This legislation is currently a Bill that was gazetted in 2009.
