Ending Gender Based Violence in Haiti
In response, the Goldin Institute partnered with grassroots women’s organizations like KOFAVIV and partners at the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti to train and equip a team of twenty-five male security and sensitization agents to patrol the Place Petion camp. Through their leadership, the reported incidents of rape were brought to zero for over eighteen months.
In addition to the immediate impact of stopping gender-based violence in the Place Petion camp, this project has also made visible the efficacy of direct partnership with grassroots women's groups who have largely been cut out of the rebuilding process in post-earthquake Haiti.
Enough Video

Enough: by the women of Haiti is a documentary highlighting the Security and Sensitization Project in the Place Petion Camp in Port au Prince Haiti. This video was produced by the Goldin Institute in partnership with the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti and KOFAVIV.
