Who are we

The Sabah Women Action Resource Group (SAWO) was formed in 1985 to join the universal struggle against violence and injustice against women and children. It was initiated by a group of women and men who were particularly concerned about the increasing incidence of violence against women and children in our society.

Working with other NGOs in the country, SAWO launched the Campaign against Violence against women in September, 1986 with a two-day public workshop cum exhibition and has since, continued to work and lobby for better protection and assistance for women and children.

Our objectives

The overall objective of SAWO is to work towards making our society more equal and just particularly for women and children. To achieve this, SAWO undertakes activities to raise public awareness and to advocate for positive changes to laws and policies that affect women. SAWO also provides support services to women and children in need and undertakes capacity building activities to strengthen agencies and NGOs that work with women and children.
