On May 27th 2016 Survivors Fund (SURF) and AVEGA launched a two year Comic Relief funded project in the Southern Province. AVEGA is made up of 19,009 members, of which 9,725 are based in the Southern Province, making it the province with the highest number of women survivors.   
 
Samuel Munderere, Survivors Fund Director, said the two year Survivors Empowerment Project (SEP) builds on a three year empowerment project that closed in March 2015 and aims to support vulnerable widows of the genocide perpetrated against Tutsi in the Southern Province.  The project will increase and secure income through an integrated microfinance loan guarantee scheme and counselling model, and deliver safe sex and HIV prevention education to their dependents through a volunteer-led approach to ensure a better future and safer lives.
