Project Title: Jeena Champions
Amount Funded: £5,000
Funded to deliver a series of workshops raising the issues of domestic violence, forced marriages, female genital mutilation and human trafficking to TVHA residents – women, young people and communities 60 in total in Slough.
From the workshops 16 (men and women) attendees can volunteer to become a Jeena Champions – to complete a 6 week (one day in each week) course on what the indicators, issues and support is available to victims. This is a proactive initiative enabling communities to raise and voice concerns over unacceptable social norms. Long term initiative is for Jeena Champions to set up regular coffee mornings and events.
