HDFF BREAKING NEWS — TODAY is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
Why did the UN choose the 25th of November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women?
Women’s rights activists have observed 25 November as a day against gender-based violence since 1981. This date was selected to honor the Mirabal sisters, three political activists from the Dominican Republic who were brutally murdered in 1960 by order of the country’s ruler, Rafael Trujillo (1930-1961).
Against this backdrop HDFF launches the new core “Focus” program for 2021 with its campaign “Women’s Safety Focus”. A series of specialized workshops and trainings for women (also possibility of tailor made for organizations) to reduce their vulnerabilities and increase women’s resilience conducted by the very professional HDFF trainer team with 18-35 years of training experience.
Expecting that in the second half of 2021 travel to Thailand will be easier and thus face-to-face trainings will be possible again, this information is also for all friends and colleagues abroad to keep it in their mind. Also, please distribute in your networks as well.
Join HDFF in this endeavor and help to protect the women in your family, your friend circles and your female co-workers. Looking forward to your comments and participation.
