Women’s empowerment can be defined to promoting women’s sense of self-worth, their ability to determine their own choices, and their right to influence social change for themselves and others. A fundamental human right that’s also key to achieving a more peaceful, prosperous world.
However, women are still being “failed”. Worldwide, women are disproportionately affected by violence through abuse, harassment, and assault. More must be done to protect females from violence.
The NFAB, STRONGLY believes in and encourages Women's Empowerment, specifically their personal protection and security. With innovative programs like S.W.A.G which looks at equipping women with the knowledge they need to both predict, prevent and avoid violence, and if necessary prepares them to deal with it by introducing women to an array of subjects that concern their personal safety.
Our program provide a clear picture of risks, tips to lessen the probability of an incident, and advice on how to respond to a variety of threats women face in everyday situations. Throughout the training, we provide tips and techniques to help women stay safe at home, work, and in public spaces. The training will also explain the risks women face in their communities, how to advocate for women's safety, and strategies to help women be confident, aware, and prepared so they can live fearlessly.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN PERSONAL SECURITY
Society and events around us demand that we become more aware of our surroundings and that we remain active in providing our own security. Therefore, whether you are safe or not is to some extent a matter of choice. Nobody chooses to become a victim of crime, but some people do make poor choices. Our training aims to correct this, through changing your thinking, so you make better choices to help mitigate and lessen the chances of you being a victim.
Protecting our women should always be our highest priority, this is something that dates back to the day of our Arawak ancestors, who had tribal values that honored women and prohibited violence against women. Today, the pathways to ending violence against women must be grounded firmly in reconnecting with countries' values. We can change how we think about our responsibilities of protecting our women and implement concrete solutions.
The NFAB will continue to fight for our women, advocating and providing programs and courses to aid in women's empowerment.
