The purpose of the Empowerment Program is to provide a safe space for survivors of sexual violence that fosters growth, empowerment, as well as build a supportive community. The theoretical aspect of the program will be delivered by professionals and community leaders, providing a unique opportunity for participants to connect with these organisations and individuals in an intimate setting. The physical skill will be taught by professionals, with the hope that survivors leave the program with the confidence that they are strong, resilient and believed. We envision that our program will provide a supportive trauma-informed network for all participants.​ If you would like to express your interest in attending the 2021 Empowerment Program please click here
