Please join the Global Network of Women’s Shelters (GNWS) for our upcoming webinars.
Each webinar will be an opportunity to hear from the VAW/GBV field, with panelists from across the globe, as they discuss the impact of COVID-19 on essential services and survivors.
The Impact of Reopening Communities on Supportive Services
As governments push to lift lockdowns, there are fears of a resurgence in COVID-19 cases and other unforeseen consequences. Meanwhile, other regions are becoming new epicenters. These uncertainties create evolving challenges for women’s shelters and other organizations working to protect survivors of violence while anticipating a surge of survivors seeking safe shelter and support. In these webinars, we will assess the current situation for the shelter movement.

Heading Off the Risk of Exploitation
After natural disasters we know the risk of exploitation rises. What we don’t know is how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the risk of exploitation. This webinar will discuss preparing for the aftermath of the pandemic, ideas for reducing exploitation of vulnerable/targeted populations, and ways NGOs can support exploited individuals.
