No One Has the Right to Hurt You

What do you do if you are affected by sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV)? What if you have a migrant background and you need to access trustworthy information and support in your own language? And what if you don’t have a residence permit in the Netherlands but you are affected by SGBV? These questions are central to PROTECT, a project that focuses on strengthening national assistance to those affected by SGBV in migrant communities.

The animated film displayed above talks about SGBV and is designed for migrant audiences. It has subtitles available in Dutch and 22 other languages.

PROTECT is funded by the "Rights, Equality and Citizenship Program" of the European Union (2014-2020). In the Netherlands, IOM is supported by project partners Arq National Psychotrauma Centre, Pharos and Rutgers, as well as 13 migrant ambassadors who play a fundamental role in bridging the gap between migrant communities and support services for those affected by SGBV in the Netherlands.
