We are glad to have new try in the past 3 years to provide funding to three organizations in three-year time to provide support to marginalized women who are threatened by intimate partner violence. We provided grants and capacity building to them. In January, we got together with our partnering community organizers to rethink and re-examine our experiences and understanding towards the concept of “bottom-up” on both individual and organizational dimension.
We’re also glad to have organizers from Asbury Methodist Social Service, Les Corner and New Arrival Women League coming to share their journeys of the three-year project “Empowering Marginalized Women Combating Domestic Violence”, and how the project can be led by teenage girls, sexual minority women and new arrival women, realizing “Power Transition”.
“When we return the right to determine back to the teenage girls, let them inform us the knowhow and lead our way, it’s empowering to see their power are massive as volcano”, said Fei-yu, Social Worker from Asbury Methodist Social Service.
It’s like mountaineering in bringing “bottom-up” into practice, during the journey, you may encounter severe and extreme conditions, but by opening up ourselves for possibilities, we will see changes led by the communities and the social impact radiated from within.
When there is resources, our capacity building can benefit to not just our grantee partners but also other leaders in the community so that we can influence more people and women's leaders to voice out for themselves like our grantee partners.
With your continuous support, we can do more and bring the voices of marginalized women out loud! Thank you and please keep supporting us!
