‣ The RINJ Foundation seeks stricter penalties for rapists.

Videos. Who are we? What are The RINJ Foundation Women doing?

The RINJ Foundation is an international membership-driven NGO with numerous operational service units purpose-built and managed to achieve its goal (see about) to protect children & their families from violence. The RINJ Foundation began with the mantra "RapeIsNoJoke" as a women's group campaign opposed to gender-based violence (rape) & expanded at a furious rate of growth.
  • The RINJ Foundation's clinics, investigators & nurses provide health care & justice for survivors in areas of armed-conflict, displaced person settlements & in refugee camps.
  • We educate the world about sexual violence, misogyny & rape culture in the context of human rights, the rule of law & a more sophisticated discussion in a gender-equal environment.
  • We monitor, collect evidence, investigate & prepare prosecutions against actors who commit or order the commission of sexual violence as a tactic of war to humiliate, dominate, instill fear in, disperse and/or forcibly relocate civilian members of a community or ethnic group.
  • Our volunteers and staff monitor and report on global court and legislative proceedings related to gender equality, rape, & sexual assault crime and by whatever means available, particularly education, strive for change towards gender equality and a higher adherence to safe community standards.

The Nurses Without Borders
Free medical care in The Rinj Foundation Remote Health Care Clinics (TRF-RHC) is offered to women and children in areas of dire need around the world. Narrow specialty RINJ Sexual Assault Clinics (RSAC) work well in major cities as out-of-sight treatment clinics existing for the purpose of caring for survivors and performing forensic evidence collection for police and court services. In many developing nations of the world this concept does not work for cultural reasons. The RINJ Foundation found it extraordinarily effective to provide basic health care in regions of armed conflict and refugee camps. Caring for survivors of rape as a war crime (Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court) has become a significant operational unit of The RINJ Foundation. Learn more about RSAC Nurses Without Borders.

Community related services such as victim advocacy, crisis hotlines, community outreach, & extensive public health education programs are provided based on each RSAC's resources at the discretion of the local RSAC nurse-led team. Learn more about this operational unit in the context of actual projects like Sinjar and Rojava.

The RINJ Foundation - Remote Surgical Clinics(TRF-RSC) support groups of TRF-RHC units as transportable basic surgery, regional centers performing routine minor and emergency major surgeries while connected to a telehealth diagnostic center. These are the largest mobile units we operate built into 40ft recycled steel shipping containers.

Rape Kits

Rape Kits are used to gather forensic information about the sexual violence crime. The RINJ Foundation raises funds for the purchase of 'rape kits' (also known as physical evidence recovery kits [PERK]; sexual offence evidence collection [SOEC] kits) and/or the funding of rape kit testing. Medical professionals complete sexual assault forensic evidence kits which must be quickly tested with results sent to police & prosecutors.
