KAFA Violence & Exploitation is a feminist, secular, Lebanese, NGO seeking to create a society that is free of social, economic and legal patriarchal structures that discriminate against women. KAFA has been aiming to eliminate all forms of gender-based violence and exploitation since its establishment in 2005. It seeks to realize substantive gender equality through the adoption of a combination of different approaches, such as: advocacy for law reform; conducting research and training; and finally empowering women and children victims of violence and proving them with support.

Through their mediation with families over the past two years, the members working on the ‘child protection’ project and the committees were able to stop 26 child marriages.
Women whose cases were tackled by Sunni, Shiite, Christian and Druze religious courts, whose laws are similar in discriminating against women. Some of them were forcibly married as minors, some were prohibited from seeing their children and some were convicted of “disobedience” because they sought refuge at shelters.
I am Manini. When first asked about my age here in Lebanon, I said that I do not know because I feared deportation if someone found out I was young.
