'anything you can contribute, cos every dollar helps these women get the support they need to live the life they deserve'
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Singapore has seen a worrying 112% spike in domestic violence. Yet many people still have a rudimentary understanding of domestic violence, based on hazy stereotypes about physical violence, drinking problems and anger management issues. Unfortunately, holding onto these myths can prevent many from seeking help, and it also deters friends and family from offering the appropriate support in difficult situations.
Together, Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) and jewellery brand, Luxequisite, have collaborated with Sinfonia Ristorante to organize 'A Mile In Her Shoes', as an awareness initiative for domestic violence and abuse. The attendance list is inclusive of lawyers, doctors, directors, entrepreneurs, key opinion
leaders, and other male dignitaries who will be participating by walking for a mile in women's heels.
About The Charity
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.
In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.
The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
