Attacked Not Defeated (AND)

The charity Attacked Not Defeated (A. N. D. ) was founded in 2012 to create a support service for survivors or sexual assault in Uganda, and eliminate sexual and gender based violence in the community.

Founded 2012

  • Mission statement

    Fighting for fair treatment and providing support for survivors of sexual assault, and working with communities to prevent sexual and gender based violence.

    A. N. D has been created with the long term aim of providing rape survivors with psychological, legal, and medical support after experiencing a trauma in the form of a Crisis and Recovery Centre (or 'Safehouse') in Kampala, Uganda where this service does not currently exist. This model can then be replicated in other areas and eventually, other countries. Our current projects aim to work with local communities to prevent sexual assault and remove the stigma surrounding rape. This includes an education programme engaging young men as advocates of gender equality, and a personal safety and awareness campaign for women.

  • Aims

    Attacked Not Defeated (AND) aims to:

    • Running campaigns to remove stigma surrounding sexual assault.
    • Delivering education to youth on gender based violence, social pressures, human rights and equality, in a bid to prevent sexual violence in the next generation.
    • To psychologically empower women through personal safety initiatives and group discussions.
    • To partner with likeminded NGO's to create a grassroots network and develop and freephone referral service for survivors of sexual violence.
    • To open a crisis and recovery centre which will provide all necessary post trauma support; e.g emergency contraception, laboratory testing, HIV prevention treatment, legal advocacy and counselling.
