RASAC P&K is committed to challenging gender-based violence:

Gender-based violence is any act of violence ‘that is directed against a woman because she is a woman or that affects women disproportionately’ (UN Secretary General Report (2006). RASAC P&K recognise that Sexual Violence is both a cause and consequence of gender inequality in our society. We aim to challenge society’s tolerance of sexual violence against women and provide services run by women for women. RASAC P&K offers women a safe women only space in which to receive support. We acknowledge survivors as the experts on what support they need and provide a range of methods of support which are aimed at empowering women to make their own choices and gain back control in their lives.
