Our Journey

Empowering Women through Arts & Culture
Empowering Women through Arts & Culture joined Our Hounslow1 month ago

Our project is aimed to get women and young girls who are victims of domestic violence (DV), to integrate in our community by participating in regular physical activity within a DV support group. There is sadly a high incidence of DV crimes in the Kosovan/Albanian/Macedonian and Gorani Community group along with more than 50% of our female community members currently suffer with major depressive disorders, anxiety, PTSD as a result. This, combined with low levels of physical activity and self isolation has led to our community members feeling segregated, alone and not a part of the wider community. We wish to increase their participation within our community group and society by holding fortnightly creative writing and traditional dance classes. This will allow the women to express themselves via a healthy outlet, whilst being supported by our trained volunteers and staff. Our project aims to increase confidence, engagement and encourage long-term inclusion of women affected by DV.
