For many women, living in violence is also living in silence. They feel trapped, they experience increased isolation, they do not feel safe in their own home, and they often feel alone and voiceless. The global pandemic has intensified this scenario and as a result Nova Vita has witnessed an increase in the number of women who stay home, often isolated, enduring escalating levels of physical and sexual violence.
We need your help. Make a difference by joining the campaign, and raise essential funds, raise awareness, and raise your voice to help break the silence on domestic violence.
- For the month of November, we challenge you to share your commitment to the fundraising campaign and to share our social media posts (@NovaVitaBrant).
- On November 24, go silent. Pick a start time that works with your life schedule and then turn off your voice. There are still plenty of ways to communicate – prerecord messages, text, write, sign, use a white board; be creative and be mindful.
- On November 25, join us as we break the silence on domestic violence in honour of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and begin our 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
