WAO woke me up from deep sleep, nudged me to do the right thing and now has enabled me to help women who aren’t sure if they would live to see another day. Always and forever indebted to WAO.
– Sunthari, domestic violence survivor
I came in hopeless into the WAO shelter. Today after all the motivation and counselling, I can walk in the street as a proud mother. All thanks goes to WAO.
– J, domestic violence survivor
Every mother should teach their son to respect women and to know that beating or hitting is against the law. As a survivor, I promise myself that I will never let others raise their hand on me. Bravo to myself as a survivor. I would also like to thank WAO for the support and motivation which makes me strong and who I am today. Thanks, WAO.

Kami bekerjasama dengan 18 remaja perempuan dari masyarakat akar umbi di Lembah Pantai yang telah menyertai secara aktif dalam sesi bengkel, perbincangan kumpulan dan sesi tayangan filem. Melalui sesi-sesi tersebut, peserta dapat memahami, membincang dan meneroka topik tentang gender, diri dan identiti, komuniti, keselamatan dan hak kanak-kanak dan wanita. #GerakGirls
Check out what our Power Up participant made! The Power Up programme is a WAO programme which empowers and upskills lower/no income women and survivors of Gender-Based Violence towards financial independence so they can live a life free from violence.
