The Women At Risk International Foundation (WARIF) is excited to kickstart the #WARIFAnonymous, a new initiative where survivors can share their stories without any shame.
With 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 8 boys experiencing one form of sexual violence or the other before the age of 18, it is evident that sexual violence is still prevalent. To mitigate the issue of sexual violence, WARIF is giving survivors the platform to share their stories without the fear of shame and stigmatisation. The goal is to continue to create awareness and change the existing negative mindset about rape and sexual violence by encouraging survivors to share their experiences anonymously.
In most cases, when one survivor speaks up, others are encouraged to do the same thereby creating awareness and reducing this prevalence. Every survivor is on a different journey to recovery and with #WARIFAnonymous, experiences can be shared to help survivors understand that they are not alone.
WARIF Anonymous is built on the voices of brave survivors who are courageous enough to share their stories. So if you are a survivor looking for an outlet to tell your story anonymously, you can visit www.warifng.org/anonymous.
