What is the Empowerment Program? 

The purpose of the Empowerment Program is to provide a safe space for participants 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.
