As a survivor of domestic violence, my purpose now lies in changing the statistics through a preventative process in a holistic and inspiring way. My own experiences have driven me to become an advocate and an educator. I want to help empower all people to work towards ending violence in all its forms. Everyone has the right to feel and to be SAFE.
We are inspired by the importance and challenge of working in the field of gender-based violence. Although we have worked in many different contexts (service provision, information and education, advocacy), locally, nationally and internationally, we remain committed for two reasons. First, we come across so many stories of strength and bravery and we wish to give visibility to this resilience. Second, we seek to bridge the worlds of research, policy and practice and contribute something useful to services on the ground.
