IMAGE is a five-year study involving 850 women and 4 000 young people from the rural Sekhukuneland district of South Africa's Limpopo province. The project is primarily concerned with preventing gender violence through empowering women, but it stretches beyond the individual to whole communities: The project combines poverty-targeted micro-finance with a participatory learning and action curriculum (Sisters for Life) that together aim to strengthen individual client agency and to improve household well-being, communication and power relations. IMAGE emphasises the importance of the environment in which sexual behaviours, gender-based violence and HIV infections are occurring.
