Gender Justice


Our international work is divided into six themes: Anti-Trafficking, Clean Water, Emergency Response, Food Security, Gender Justice and Income Generation.

We work alongside communities to support projects in each of these areas. We are also responsible for overseeing the transfer of funds for the UK’s Mission Support Allocation (money donated through the annual Self-Denial Appeal).

We support a number of Gender Justice projects such as group therapy for survivors of domestic violence in Argentina, and women’s advocacy in Pakistan. The Salvation Army is working with women around the world to give them support to know that they are loved, as well as the skills and knowledge so that they are empowered and equipped to take their place as equal and active members of society.

Group Therapy for Women Experiencing Domestic Violence, Argentina

In Tres Arroryos, Argentina, The Salvation Army has established ‘Unidas hacia un Cambio’ (United Towards a Change) groups to support women experiencing violence in the home. Through group therapy sessions we provide a space of mutual support for women who are, or have been, victims of domestic violence. Women are cared for and listened to by the team and by the other group members. Whilst each woman’s story is different, they all have the opportunity to speak out and share their experience in a safe and comforting environment.

As women gain confidence to share their stories and recognise that they do not need to be ashamed of their experiences, increasing numbers of people will see that a culture of violence against women is unacceptable. As this message is also shared with younger generations, the cycle of violence in the home will come to and end.
