Our FLUYE program is really reaching our girls. Recently during the component that covers sexual violence several girls in the group came forward with their own experiences of sexual assault.
Below is Hana’s response to that situation:
"As I see it, yesterday was the day their pain became seen, and hopefully the day their voices will begin to be heard.
Also, it was the day that these girls realize they are NOT GUILTY of the abuse they have gone through, and that they have the POWER to heal and CHANGE THAT. Also, that they are responsible to take care of themselves, and gather the strength to help other girls that might go through the same situation.
It was a day where they realized they are not alone in their pain. And other girls realized the sorrow that some of their soul sisters are living. It was a day that brought them together as women to support each other. That part was incredibley beautiful to see.
I couldn’t sleep last night. We are touching deep roots of the reality of violence against girls and women. Realizing that each one of these girls CAN transform their pain into the power of saying No and into inner strength for no longer tolerating abuse, takes my breath away..."
This is why we need this expansion of the DFG education model into the Fluye 10-hour education program. The video that Hana made will help you get a feel for Fluye and the power it has.
