Hear Women supports Women and Girls to empower themselves and their families.
As articulated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we consider the key to effecting change is to advance women’s full and effective participation in decision making at all levels of political, economic and public life. Women can become key decision makers if they feel safe and are provided the knowledge, skills, and support to advocate for themselves.
– Providing safe spaces for them to build relationships, discuss personal issues, and to develop self-confidence;
– Providing support, skills, and links to resources to develop their abilities to address mental health needs, improve their physical health, and advocate for themselves;
– Providing education and training to enable them to fully participate in the political process
User Led Charity
All Hear Women/GarGar Foundation services and projects have strong evidence of user needs and our users are active in all aspects of the development, decision making and design of services. To establish the need for our programmes, we have used the following methods
Knowledge and Experience:
All our programmes are user-led and the initial development of programmes is always based on clearly identified needs of the community we serve.
Monitoring and Evaluation:
The performance of services and projects are regularly checked to review those programmes that work and those that do not, as this helps us to improve how we do things and learn from mistakes.
This is important to past, existing and future programmes. Information gathered from the evaluation and the monitoring of systems is the basis of evidence.
Focus Groups: Hear Women service users are regularly given the opportunity to feedback their needs both formally and informally.
