    MASVINGO –
    Musasa Project, a non-governmental organization whose objective is to  work towards ending gender based violence focused on women and girls and help them rebuild their lives after tragic experiences has opened its offices in Masvingo.
    The offices which are located at 4 Robin House commonly known as Zambuko House next to Masvingo passport offices were opened at the end of last year.
    Tendai Kusvabadika who is the Musasa programs officer for Masvingo confirmed the development in an interview with The Mirror last week. Before opening the new offices, Musasa had offices in Chiredzi which have now been closed in preference of Masvingo.
    Kusvabadika said her organization helps Gender Based Violence survivors by providing them with direct services such as psycho-social support, legal services, temporary safe shelter and financial assistance. The organization receives clients referred from other stakeholders.
    The Masvingo office becomes Musasa’s fourth branch in the country. The organization has a presence in three other provinces namely; Harare, Gweru and Bulawayo.
    In Masvingo, Musasa has shelters in Gutu, Bikita and Mwenezi.
    “We began operations in Masvingo province late last year and we have three shelters in Gutu, Bikita and Mwenezi for women and children seeking a safe haven.
    “We relocated to Masvingo from Chiredzi because we can easily access the whole province from here. This location enables us to work with other organisations in the same line of work,” said Kusvabadika.
    The organization also provides shelter and temporary places of safety for women in crisis.
    “Our vision is a society in which women do not suffer from violence and are able to fully participate in development thus the name Musasa, an indigenous tree whose thick leaves provide shade in very hot conditions,” added Kusvabadika.
