The Pearl Safe Haven is a Ghanaian company limited by guarantee (not for profit) operating an emergency shelter for survivors of sexual and domestic violence.
We aim to provide a safe place and support to enable women and children who have suffered abuse to re-build their lives and rejoin the community.
The vision of the Pearl Safe Haven is to promote the human rights of women and children and to protect and heal those who have suffered gender-based violence in Ghana.
We are determined to change the narrative on Gender Based violence in Ghana.
According to official figures, 38.7% of Ghanaian women between the ages of 15 and 49 years have experienced violence at the hands of an intimate partner.
Tragically, girls under the age of 19 years are the demographic most likely to experience violence. Our solution is multi-pronged. In addition to establishing are refuge - The Pearl Safe Haven - we run regular advocacy programs and have developed a mobile application - The Safe Place - to provide important remote support to survivors.
