The association Hazissa, an institute for prevention of sexualized violence, was established in January 2003.

Everyone can be affected by sexualized violence: children, adolescents, men and women. Particularly at risk are girls and women, people in institutions (e.g. homes or dormitories) or other dependent relationships as well as women and men with disabilities.

Hazissa tries to support changes in social and institutional power structures, raise awareness for the subject and provide information for the general public, trainings and knowledge transfer for parents and pedagogues, caregivers, children, adolescents, men and women with disabilities. This work prevents the incidences of sexual violence on the one hand and on the other hand supports the individuals within the help system in detection and processing of sexualized violence.
