The Safer Families Project raises awareness about issues of abuse and violence, especially family voilence, and other related issues of honour and shame. This program aims to eradicate domestic violence through culturally- and spiritually-sensitive education programs as well as by supporting women and children who have experienced violence, abuse, and trauma.
Workshops include: Women’s conversation circles, Ladies Tea Time, Positive Parenting workshops, Conflict Resolution in Islam, Marriage & Family Violence, and Mediation & Arbitration from an Islamic perspective.
