NO ONE IS USELESS IN THIS WORLD WHO LIGHTENS THE BURDENS OF ANOTHER
Changing the lives of those impacted by domestic violence
It has always been a goal of mine to support women's empowerment. Not just through what I teach, but through the people I work with. This organization is committed to creating change in the community and give people the resources they need to leave domestic violence situations safely. I am honored to support their community with yoga. As a community, let's support their work!
Their volunteers provide practical assistance in the form of household donations through community involvement. Typically, when women (alone or with child) have fled a domestic violence situation, either voluntarily or via police escort, they seek solace or care in a refuge. After 12 weeks, the family are supported by the refuge to source independent accommodation. Prior to the family moving out, the refuge or service will liaise with RizeUp who in-turn coordinates the creation of a fully furnished Home.
The Home transformation happens within 5 hours so the family can move in immediately which allows for another family in crisis to be placed in refuge. The team leader and their ‘RizeUp Ready’ volunteers coordinate the home transformation by fitting the house out with furniture, linen, kitchenware, toiletries, curtains and appliances. In true altruistic fashion, the RizeUp team never meet the families that are provided with support. RizeUp is a reputable charity that has over 200 volunteers.
To support them, consider donating 2$ to their organization.
