Financial summary

Hi friends,

Thanks so much for all your support over the last year. We have kickstarted a process of breaking the culture of silence that surrounds violence within the family.

We have struggled to open up space for discussion and self-analysis by abused women.

To some extent, we have partially succeeded but we still have a long way to go. We still need all the support to change cultural perceptions and myths that legitimize violence.

With your assistance, we have been able to reach out to community gatekeepers, abusive husbands and the community at large.

We look forward to a more fruitful process where we can successfully engage more partners in this crusade against the outdated domestic violence.

Once again thanks so much for all your support. As we start the year, we hope you will be as supportive and assist us break the culture of violence.

We look forward to your feedback after going through the summarised version of our 6-month financial breakdown.
