11 JANUARY 2018 (WORLDWIDE): In honour of Mother’s Day 2018, The Pixel Project, a 501(c)3 anti-violence against women nonprofit, cordially invites women and girls who have survived gender-based violence to join our 5th annual Survivor Stories Blog Interview Project.
The project will feature an interview with a survivor per day on The Pixel Project’s blog throughout the month of May 2018. A total of 31 survivor stories will be featured and the focus of the interviews would be on how survivors have rebuilt their lives and/or healed from the violence.
The Survivor Stories Blog Interview Project is created to:
- Give survivors a safe platform to share their stories and solutions/ideas on how they rebuilt their lives and healed/are healing.
- Give girls and women currently experiencing or have survived the violence ideas and inspiration and hope to escape the violence and know that there is light at the tunnel and there is help out there.
Survivors of any form of violence against women including domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, sexual assault (including workplace sexual assault), stalking, online violence against women, female genital mutilation, acid attacks, sex trafficking, breast ironing, bride kidnapping/trafficking, and forced marriage/child marriage, are welcome to participate. Survivors may also come from any part of the world.
The interview will take the form of filling in a short Word-format interview sheet in English; then returning the completed interview sheet (in Word format) together with the accompanying materials requested in the interview sheet to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by the deadline of 30 April 2018.
