Hope for home allies

THE Homes of Hope (HoH) is calling on corporate organisations to partner with them to conduct community trainings of abuse, gender equality and moral purity.

The home conducted an open day yesterday at its headquarters on the outskirts of Suva where it showed government officials and corporate guests the work it did in rehabilitating women it sheltered.

"We are not asking for funding, but rather that these companies and groups partner with us in helping us take the ideas that we have implemented here into the communities," HoH director Pastor Marl Roche said.

HOH opened in 1996 and has helped over 100 women break away from sexual and abusive lifestyles.

They have helped women rebuild their lives, especially in their emotional and mental rehabilitation.

They have recently started workshops that they want to take into communities. These workshops include the 30 hours of counselling for abuse survivors, male advocacy teaching men on gender equality, brave hearts that focuses on young people and the sexual and moral purity from God.

They have also started trainings on mothering skills and financial independence.

Meanwhile, HoH has plans to open new centres in the Solomon Islands and Malawi.
