Women experience violence in many ways, from physical and emotional abuse to sexual harassment. Whatever form it takes, violence against women can have serious long-term physical and emotional effects. Violence against women and girls is a global pandemic that affects 1 in 3 women, with severe consequences.
Given the devastating effect violence has on women, efforts have mainly focused on responses and services for survivors. Women Rising Above Abuse (WRAA) provides support for sexually abused women and youth survivors. We empower, strength, and uplift the victims of domestic violence so that they can lead a normal life with hope, purpose and faith.
We provide support to survivors in the form of journalizing, mentorship, counseling, and workshops. Our main motive is to help domestic abuse victims overcome their past and take a step forward to lead an independent life of happiness. We assure you that we will keep all your talks completely confidential.
