I believe my sufferings have empowered me to develop the strongest soul. Because of that, I am determined to live my life for others whose lives are seared with scars. I am grateful to God for having a second chance in life and I will live every day like it’s my last. It’s so important for me to speak on behalf of children, refugees and women because I know and feel their pain in my heart.
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.
