Francesca Fondse started WIIN in 2017.
I am very grateful for every gain and every stride that I, in my personal capacity, my capacity as National Champion for Women against Domestic Violence, Gender Based Violence and Intimate Femicide, DOJ&CD has made.
WIIN is becoming the movement it is envisioned to be!
Education and Socio-economic empowerment of women and girls offers a solution that may alleviate or completely address underlying causes of violence, especially among poor women.
In 2016, the United Nations called upon the South African government to take quick action to address these horrendous acts of violence against women and children in the country.
I founded Women Integral Impact Network (WIIN) in 2017 to empower women with knowledge about what to do and where to go in case of violence, financial knowledge, personal wellness, and financial independence to prevent femicide and overcome the effects of domestic violence within households and workplaces.
Women Integral Impact Network – Empowered Women and Youth in South Africa (WIIN – EWYSA) Project offers a unique solution that builds upon existing interventions by providing a network that will champion for socio-economic empowerment of vulnerable women, girls across the country.
WIIN’s methodology is based on the premise that economic empowerment of vulnerable and unbankable women helps them to become less dependent and able to make choices that will result in their wellbeing
WIIN’s approach in delivering services is based on the power of collaboration, unifying, networking and providing collective ownership to fast-track, scale-up and deliver high impact sustainable projects among the most vulnerable and economically disenfranchised women.
