What is Get Moving!?

Get Moving! is a process developed in response to Network members’ observations during a 2008 gathering in Cape Town.  Many members voiced the desire to engage in a reflective process that would help individuals and organizations meditate on their commitment to VAW prevention, as well as refocus our work into movement building efforts.  The goal was to create a transformative and sustainable analysis of VAW for the whole Network—to give life to a shared analysis.

In 2009, ten member organizations began the Get Moving! process:

  • Agisanang Domestic Abuse Prevention and Training (ADAPT) South Africa
  • Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) Uganda
  • Centre for Rights Education and Awareness (CREAW) Kenya
  • WITS Health Consortium, South Africa
  • Kivulini Women’s Rights Organization, Tanzania
  • Musasa Project, Zimbabwe
  • Rwanda Men’s Resource Center (RWAMREC)
  • White Ribbon Campaign, Namibia
  • Women’s Legal Resources Centre (WOLREC) Malawi
  • Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) Zambia


Their successes and challenges provided feedback which was used to create a revised version. Get Moving! was then re-launched at our 2012 GBV Prevention Network retreat in Kampala, where members were given the opportunity to sign commitment letters and receive the process tools for their organizations.
