OUR PROJECT IN DENMARK
Our first pilot project is developed, tested, adjusted and evaluated in Denmark in collaboration with our strong Danish partner the social enterprise UNIK Danmark. You can read more about UNIK Danmark here https://www.unikdanmark.dk/
The project aims to work on prevention of violence against young vulnerable women with mental health problems before they become parents in order to break the cycles of intergenerational trauma and violence running in families across generations.
Even though, Denmark is one of the safest places in the world to be a women, still 118.000 women and more than 30.000 children are exposed to domestic violence every year in a population of ony 6 million people. As a society we simply must do this better, and we want to support this important work here nationally and start growing our movement from here and then upscale it as soon as possible, changing womens situation globally one step at a time.
Next stop is India - the world most dangerous place to be a woman in 2018.
SISTERHOOD IN PUNE, INDIA
A collaboration platform with Maher Foundation and Sr. Lucy Kurien has made it possible to establish our first international Sisterhood in Pune, India.
The Maher Foundation is a reputable Indian NGO, with a special advisory status to the UN Economic and Social Council due to their 24 years of successful work to establish security for the most vulnerable women and children - and now also men in India.
This is a collaboration with many perspectives and we are very much looking forward to benefitting from each others knowledge and skills.
The project is ready to take off.... right after the first Danish project.

India is the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour, according to a poll of global experts.
Government data shows reported cases of crimes against women in India rose by 83% between 2007 and 2016, when there were four cases of rape reported every hour.
India also ranks the most dangerous country for women in terms of human trafficking, including sex and domestic slavery, and for customary practices such as forced marriage, stoning and female infanticide.
