Empowering Domestic Violence Survivors in Jamaica
I am fundraising to pay for travel, curriculum and materials for economic empowerment program for domestic survivors in Jamaica. I am a survivor of childhood domestic violence. My mother did not leave my father despite his abusiveness towards his family because she lacked education, skills and finances to support four children on her own. Research proves, economic empowerment prevents women from returning and staying in abusive relationships. I want to stop the cycle, empower women and prevent its spread to future generations. I want to be the change!
