the women together
We want to thank you, for your support is helping us to reach our mission of fighting against violence and oppression against women by educating the population about the causes and consequences of violence through drama theaters and films is being successfully achieved. Our activities are positively making remarkable impact. The community members consider our program as a positive strategy for social change.
Since our last report, we directly reached 500 people in different area. This is beyond our expectation as we planned to only reach 200 People or 100 couples.
This November, December, and January 2013 we have been playing theaters that teaches couples, in order to achieve our goal of reducing oppression of women by educating the community. In the theater performance we teach the community through showing the roots causes of domestic violence, its consequences and ways to handle to eradicate it in our household.
The story of the play
Our story is about physical and emotional violence in families.
In one family, there is a husband who refuses to give school fees to his children, while he was unfaithful towards his wife. He used to spend much money with different women so called lovers.
One day he brought one woman at home lying that she is his sister. After few days he enrolled her to a school, and paid for her school fees. This causes conflict in the family, as they figured out that the husband has money, but he is too selfish to pay for his own children’s studies.
At the end that husband made the other woman pregnant, and chased her. In another family, a husband uses to be busy with work. He doesn’t care or have physical relationship with his wife, as a consequence the wife starts making love having love at work with her boss. After a while, she becomes pregnant. The issue was who is going to be the father? Who to blame? What do you think can be done to change this type of violence in our communities?
In February we will launch our short movie on domestic violence. Our movie reaches uncountable people in our community. Our team has started to be famous and people always wait with curiosity of our following movies.
We plan to extend our activities, in order to reach more people by developing new partnership other organizations and network.
Once again thank you!
