Training for sexual violence survivors


How does the training work?

Our training program is organized in 3 main steps to empower sexual violence survivors and kickstart their road to financial independence.

Step 1: Transitioning

Our trainees are introduced to their new learning environment (the team, our co-working & training space, their cohort) and paired with a mentor who will individually guide them towards designing their very own professional and personal project.

Step 2: Basic skills

We organize basic skills courses for our trainees according to their professional goals. Our core courses include literacy, mathematics and computer training.

Each trainee beneficiates from psychological and personal support and is given the opportunity to develop her curiosity as she takes part in a wide range of activities proposed at our center.

Step 3: Advanced training & work placement

We partner with corporations through their CSR programs to give our trainees access to the specialized training they need to reach their life goals.

We accompany them until they get their first professional opportunity: an internship, an apprenticeship, a first contract.

At each step of the way, our trainees are supported by peers and advisors:

  • A mentor in step 1

  • A “didi” (big sister) in step 2

  • An ila Gen buddy in step 3

Her voice, her choice.
