WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT GOALS
SEWA-AIFW Economic Empowerment Program will provide courses, resources, referrals and grants that work to empower survivors of domestic violence in earning their own living and pursuing careers. Over time, as greater numbers of women are breaking the silence around their abuse and seeking ways to empower themselves. SEWA-AIFW has received more and more request from survivors for assistance in learning the skills needed to gain personal freedom and financial independence.
We are looking toward setting up a fund. This fund will provide scholarships to buy sewing machines, teach English classes, and computer classes that encourage survivors throughout their healing process.
SEWA-AIFW works to actively include survivors of abuse in all of our community awareness activities. We believe that battered women must be given the opportunity to speak out and share their experiences and to help build a society that does not shame and blame survivors.
We believe that in order to build a violence free society, we must engage all members of our community to take responsibility in condemning domestic violence.
We provide women with information about their options and rights. SEWA-AIFW advocates and staff never tell a woman what to do; rather, we give women information about possible courses of action and help her become empowered to make her own decisions.
