Study abroad in South Africa


South Africa

The South African Faith and Family Institute (SAFFI) was founded in 2008 with the intention of creating a coordinated restorative justice response to domestic violence with particular focus on building capacity in the faith sector and holding perpetrators accountable for their abusive behavior. SAFFI helps  individuals live up to their full potential in intimate relationships and families in a society free from gender-based violence.

SAFFI serves as a resource to religious leaders, institutions and faith communities, and holds various events and workshops to challenge, “from a theological perspective, patriarchal traditions and other root causes of intimate partner abuse and violence that destroys the dignity of women, children and men.”
