Empowered Aid Helpdesk

Access support tailored to your needs and context!

The Empowered Aid helpdesk is a free technical advice service for aid workers and researchers – local to global – working to mitigate risks of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) in humanitarian settings. Empowered Aid’s guidance and tools use participatory approaches to make aid programs safer by engaging crisis-affected communities, while centering the experience and expertise of women and girls, as those most affected by SEA.
