Changing the narrative, one child at a time

What We Do At HandsOff Initiative

The primary focus at HandsOff is to educate children and teenagers on consent as the aim is to ensure the future generation are well equipped to deal with these issues. However, we have had to develop campaigns, programs and events that educate adults as well on consent as there has been a rising demand for this.


We speak against rape, sexual assault and gender based violence through advocacy and campaigns.

Consent Sessions

We organize physical and virtual classes, workshops & seminars on consent in schools, offices, communities and religious houses.

Support Survivors

We extend our arms of support to both survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones.

About HandsOff Initiative

Hands Off Initiative is a not-for-profit organization established in March 2018 and began operations officially in August 2018 to break the cycle of abuse and address the systemic problem of rape, sexual abuse, harassment and assault in our societies.

We do this by going to schools, universities and communities to teach children, teenagers and young adults about consent.
