2022 ANWS Annual Conference

Resilience: A Path Leading Women Towards Trauma Recovery

The Asian Network of Women’s Shetlers and the Garden of Hope Foundation are pleased to announce that the 2022 ANWS Annual Conference on 02 September, 2022 is now open for REGISTRATION!

We have learned trauma could affect women and children psychologically and emotionally. How we can help guide them to a path towards recovery? What role does resilience play in the recovery? How survivors can manage relationships with self, children, and perpetrators? We invite you to join this conference to hear speakers from Nepal, the U.S., Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, and the Netherlands sharing their insights, experiences, challenges and opportunities on relationship repair and resilience among women, children, and intimate partners.

In this conference we bring you not only keynote speeches but also workshops. We hope through this virtual conference audience can be inspired by listening and practicing sharing from speakers.

NGO CSW66, We Are Coming.

ANWS together with the Garden of Hope Foundation in Taiwan will hold a NGO CSW66 parallel event: The Silver Linings and Prospects for Women in Poverty Under the Covid-19 Crisis in Asia on 17 March at 12:00 a.m. ET (please click here for your local time).

As stated in UN Women’s articles women in Asia represent two thirds of the poor. Moreover, it is widely observed that GBV survivors often face economic abuse in addition to physical violence. Taking into account of their financial situations, survivors may find it hard to be independent, especially victims often have children with them to care for when they are accommodated into a shelter. How CSOs in Asia can help empower GBV survivors in economic means and access better employment opportunities is what we want to discuss in this parallel event.
