V Empower Migrant Women
All migrant women to have access to information and resources to fight against gendered violence by 2040.
V Educate 2040
Gendered Violence is on the rise in Australia and it disproportionately impacts migrant women. One in three migrant and refugee women in Australia are subjected to domestic violence. A 2021 study found that Temporary visa holders consistently reported proportionately higher levels of gendered violence, including controlling behaviours and migration-related controlling behaviours.
V Educate 2040 is our commitment for all migrant women to have access to tailored information and resources empowering them to prevent and fight gendered abuse by 2040.
It's admirable to see that the founders of Veera Brave Girl are committed to helping migrant women experiencing domestic and family violence. Their commitment to creating an empowered environment for these vulnerable women is truly inspiring. By providing resources and training to this cohort, Veera empowers them to rebuild their lives and become financially independent. I applaud Mannie and Sheeba for their dedication to making a difference in these women's lives.
Veera Brave girl was an essential topic for all my students to celebrate International Women’s Day 2023. Their insight into empowering migrant women to leave abusive relationships starts a dialogue for all our students. It also consents them with the knowledge that they have control and, irrespective of any culture, must feel safe with anyone. The video presentation was powerful in educating our young women and our young men. Such programmes must introduce young students to migrating and assimilating into new cultures.
