On 30 June 2020, a toll-free number, 13 13, was launched in The Gambia to provide assistance to women victims of gender-based violence. The launch was attended by the Minister of Women's Affairs and the First Lady of The Gambia.
This hotline is the result of a partnership between ENDA Santé and Paradise Foundation, in the framework of the FEVE Programme. The project "Breaking the culture of silence and creating an enabling environment for Gender-based Violence (GBV) survivors", implemented by Paradise Foundation, is financed through the Innovation and Impulse Fund (F2I) of FEVE.
This fund aims to support innovative and promising initiatives in West Africa. It is financed by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
