KAFA (enough) Violence & Exploitation is a Lebanese non-profit civil organization working towards eradicating all forms of gender-based violence and exploitation of women and children through advocating for legal reform and change of policies and practices, influencing public opinion, and empowering women and children.
Since more than two years, KAFA started to work on engaging men in ending violence against women, in partnership with OXFAM GB.
