"Among other organizations in this field, Unsilenced Voices has been recognized as a an outstanding and a strategic partner by the ministry in dealing with SGBV issues.

The ministry of Social Welfare is incredibly impressed and holds Unsilenced Voices to a very high esteem for our strategic interventions in fighting against SGBV. This was expressed during an engagement we had earlier today with the Regional Director and other senior members of staff of the Ministry, in pursuit of an office space within one of their facilities in the center of town. 

The structure is strategically located in the middle of town. It's approximately 250m from the Police and about 150m from the hospital. This will undoubtedly put an automatic end to the problem of accessibility by victims/clients who seek our help.  

Given our valued contribution in the field of humanity, the Director and other staff of the Ministry on the ground, have given their consent to occupy one of their abandoned structure that will need to be renovated by us since we will not be paying rent.   Below are pictures, during an assessment, of the structure with the Regional Director."

Unsilenced Voices has been working on creating partnerships to continue and expand our reach.  We are expanding our community sensitization programs to schools in and around Bo, Sierra Leone and we have partnered with a celebrity in the Los Angeles area to help us generate awareness (the celebrity will be revealed soon!). 

Unsilenced Voices will be starting programing in the USA while fullfilling our obligations to Ghana and Sierra Leone.  We plan to hold quarterly educational summits in LA to help the many victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex traffiking in California.  The founder, Michelle Jewsbury, is traveling worldwide speaking about this epidemic so we can see tremendous change around the world. 

We are having huge success educating women and men in villages and in the city, but we continue to need more help.  We are hoping that by bringing influencers on our team, we can raise the money needed for both Ghana and Sierra Leone so we can expand not only to the United States, but also Nepal and Rwanda.  

Save the date for October 23.  We will be holding a fundraising event in Los Angeles with LN2 restaurant on Melrose 6pm-9pm.  $49 General Admission and $99 VIP PRESALE

These past months we hosted several sensitization meetings, which focused on awareness and prevention of domestic violence. The goal is to empower survivors to become aware of their rights as well as preventative measures. The last in Sierra Leone hosted 77 attendees in the villages of Bo and Golu. Additionally, we conducted a sensitization meeting at a school in Ghana with the Ark Foundation. Coming up this month, Global Giving is visiting our location in Sierra Leone during one of our sensitizations.
If you’re in the LA area, please check out our fundraiser with California Pizza Kitchen in Studio City on July 2. Also, mark your calendars for our first annual Fashion Gala on October 23.
 
Thank you for your continued support!

The Bo Women's Vocational Training Centre is having a lot of success.  Unsilenced Voices sponsors girls who were once on the street selling their bodies to make money go through the training program at the vocational centre.  The girls and women can choose gara & tye dye, baking, or hairdressing.  They also receive education about domestic abuse and sexual violence.  

Unsilenced Voices is working with the Family Support Unit to help victims of domestic violence go to the hospital to receive their mandatory medical examination before filing charges against their abuser.  The women and girls at the vocatoinal centre are also educated on abuse laws and what their rights are.
