Who is AWAM
The All Women ‘s Action Society (AWAM), an independent feminist non-profit organization, established in 1985. At AWAM, our focus is on victims and survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) such as rape, domestic violence and sexual harassment.
We provide free counselling services and legal information, and this is open to all people in crisis, irrespective of gender. We also do public education and outreach with the aim of establishing a movement of people who are aware of the GBV issues facing society and want to eradicate the problems.
AWAM also works directly with government agencies and ministry to advocate for policy change, understanding that positive change needs to happen in both society and legislation for sustainable holistic impact.
The Significance of Your Contribution
Your contribution can help us save a woman from being beaten by her husband, a young girl from being seduced by a lecher. It will help us teach students in high school how to take care of themselves, especially when it comes to relationships and consent.
Your contribution will allow us to come up with strong social media campaigns telling people. Your money will enable us to teach junior office workers how to protect themselves from sexual harassment and on the flip side, teach upper management about best practices (in other words, please treat your employees right!).
Your contribution will enable us to provide better training for our staff and counselors, so that they can provide the most effective support to the women that come to us. Better yet, your contribution will allow us to reach the marginalized communities to empower them. Even something as small as providing them with the correct information could make a difference in their lives. All in all, your contribution will allow us all the opportunity to make this world a safe place for everyone.
