Dare to Soar online workshops - starting in November

Dare To Soar – Online Workshop

Welcome to the “Dare to Soar” workshop series, specifically designed to empower and support women who are survivors of domestic abuse and other traumatic experiences. This three-part workshop series aims to help you rebuild your self-esteem and boost your confidence. We understand the courage it takes to seek healing and growth, and we’re here to provide you with the tools and strategies to rebuild your sense of self-worth and confidence.

This course is being run during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence.

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. 

The campaign was started by activists at the inauguration of the Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991. It is used as an organising strategy by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
