I was held down by six men and raped by five of them. First, they [shot and] killed my brother … then they threw me to the side and one man tore my lungi [sarong], grabbed me by the mouth and held me still.

report Start Network

by Amrina Rana

Start Network has launched four new “innovation labs” in Bangladesh, Jordan, Kenya and the Philippines, aimed at finding fresh ways to help local communities prepare for disasters.

The move is the first of its kind by NGOs, as the labs will facilitate innovations by people on the ground that are driven by client needs, making the labs more locally driven than many other investments into innovation in the sector. The £10 million programme, jointly managed by Start Network and CDAC Network and funded by UK Aid, will end in March 2019.
