What We Do

Our current primary project focus is on victims of domestic abuse (women and children).

  • Prevention: we are developing an educational resource focused around addressing healthy relationships
  • In-action services: we are developing a discreet recording device which would aid police by providing visual and audio evidential support for criminal convictions for domestic violence offenses without putting women at risk
  • Resources for children: we are creating an educational and mentorship resource for children lagging behind in school due to constant living relocation
  • Support package: this package assists victims of domestic abuse in post-trauma recovery, in partnership with experts and local charities

Social Impact

Every day, men and women across the world are facing inequalities that are not being addressed. This includes anything from sexual harassment and assault to pay inequality to facing stereotypes on a daily basis. With the spread of the #MeToo movement, the increasing dismissal of stereotypical “men’s and women’s roles,” society is working towards a better tomorrow. However, while these issues are getting talked about more often, they aren’t always addressed. Our initiative hopes to take a more active role in making sure these issues are addressed beyond the mainstream conversations.
