Family violence is a crime that usually goes unnoticed in many communities. Most victims tend to keep silent about it due to fear and family honour. However, speaking out and seeking help has saved many lives. Survivors can tell stories of their experiences and people passionate about family violence can also talk about it to raise awareness. Raising awareness is a great way to mobilise people and get people involved and even get laws changed or developed to protect victims and survivors. You can speak to your local/ national decision makers, hold talks in your community and in schools about the impact family violence has on its victims and how it affects the economy of a county. You can share information about our events, trainings, workshops and even attend them. You can also be an advocate for change!
Prevention through Education
Education is a great way of raising awareness in order to prevent and break the cycle of family violence. Thus, we invite you to become an educator for the prevention of family violence. You can organise training programmes, campaigns, workshops, presentations, seminars, and conferences in schools which will cater to young people, community groups, colleges, and universities.
Attend our events
Love and Care for People is an organisation that depends very much on the support of our volunteers as they are a very vital part of our work. We are always looking for passionate people to help raise awareness about family violence, raise money to combat it, and lobby for better services and policies to protect victims and survivors.
It is with the continued support of our volunteers that we are able to impact lives and address the immediate and long-term needs of children, young people, and women in crisis. Young people are always welcome to help out. However, we require our volunteers to be over 16 years and must have the consent of an adult.
Speak to children and young people about responsibility, self-value, and respect for others. In this way, you become part of a community of people building a generation of children with knowledge about family violence and its impact on children, girls, young people, and women.
Writing funding applications, proposals, and carrying out a research can greatly help us forward our cause! To complement this, you can also either develop an online store to sell our products, manage our social media platform (Facebook, Twitter), write newsletters, produce videos, capture and publish photographs, design posters, or manage or create content for our website.
INTERN WITH US
Internships are a great way to make a difference! We are always looking for passionate people to invest some few weeks or months in supporting children, young people, and women who have suffered the trauma of an abusive experience. If you are passionate about bringing hope and helping change lives, then let’s talk!
