" The opportunity to meet people around the world with the same goals as me and in similar situations as mine is invaluable. I am looking forward to reinforce our projects and make a bigger change in the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Ohana Project
The Ohana Project aims to give families coming from various neighborhoods prone to domestic violence, the tools to reach assertive communication within their own family environment. This project consists of 5 workshops —each of them lasting around an hour and a half— where two topics are discussed per session and put into action.
The Ohana Project is family-oriented and we welcome families from all age-ranges and compositions; teenagers and adults have immersive and thought-provoking sessions, while the kids are given age-appropriate lessons and activities that stimulate their natural curiosity and allow them to receive the same vital information as their adult's counterparts.
The Ohana Project aims to reduce domestic violence by strengthening the communication between the family members.
