Get in touch, we promise to respond fast

We are non-​profit mak­ing, non-​partisan; char­i­ta­ble trust of the Nairobi Women’s Hos­pi­tal (NWH) which is a pri­vate insti­tu­tion that spe­cialises in obstet­rics and gynae­col­ogy ser­vices and seeks to pro­vide holis­tic care to women and their families.

GVRC’s main pur­pose is to bring back mean­ing to survivor’s lives and their fam­i­lies. We do this through the pro­vi­sion of free med­ical treat­ment and psy­choso­cial sup­port to sur­vivors of gen­der based vio­lence. The med­ical sup­port given is the basic treat­ment for sur­vivors of Gen­der Based Vio­lence (GBV) that includes emo­tional, phys­i­cal, sex­ual and psy­cho­log­i­cal abuse.

“We bring back meaning to lives of survivors and families.”

    The sto­ries I heard from inter­view­ing patients in the hos­pi­tal wards taught me how pre­dom­i­nant con­struc­tions of mas­culin­ity tied to phys­i­cal vio­lence in the house­hold. Mean­while, I also assisted with GVRC’s pos­i­tive mas­culin­ity cam­paign with Kenya’s National Seven’s Rugby Team. These rugby play­ers were the role mod­els of many youth in Kenya and they talked in uni­ver­si­ties and used their influ­ence to lower instances phys­i­cal abuse in the house­hold by pos­i­tively alter­ing soci­etal per­cep­tions of mas­culin­ity.”

    “I vol­un­teered at GVRC for one year, in the Social Work Depart­ment. Dur­ing my time at GVRC I worked with such lovely, warm hearted staff who were always open to work­ing with me, men­tor­ing me, and allow­ing me to hone my skills as a Social Worker. I had a chance to merge the the­o­ret­i­cal aspects of social work into prac­ti­cal work. I espe­cially enjoyed the ward rounds, where I inter­acted with sur­vivors. I also worked with the staff to assist those sur­vivors who needed shel­ter, legal aid, and adop­tion ser­vices among many oth­ers. I vis­ited all the GVRC branches and loved inter­act­ing with staff and part­ners of GVRC. This was indeed a life chang­ing expe­ri­ence I wouldn’t trade for any other!”

    GVRC has put a lot of impact upon my life from the time I came to work as an intern. In the first place, it is the only insti­tu­tion I came to know, whose main pur­pose is to bring back mean­ing, to Gen­der Based Vio­lence sur­vivors’ lives and their fam­i­lies.
