Dare To Hope
Dare to Hope Campaign is launched today to mark International Women’s Day
What is it all about?
Everyday a woman is abused, physically, mentally and emotionally. Everyday a woman suffers from depression. Everyday a woman suffers from an eating disorder. Everyday a woman attempts to cope by self harming. Everyday women Dare to Hope, Dare to Hope that someone will listen to them. Women are the strongest of characters, but they suffer in silence. We see mothers, sisters, aunties, grandmothers, friends but we don’t see their depression, their isolation, their suffering, their pain. At Muslim Youth Helpline (MYH) we do see this everyday, when a woman calls MYH she is hoping someone will listen and share her suffering, and we do, but we need your help to continue listening, to continue helpline and empowering. We need your help to continue providing our service. Dare to Hope is all about talking about these issues and making sure that women continue to get the support they need!

What do you Dare to Do?

We have people jumping out of planes in April, Chief Executives wearing wigs to important meetings and people walking through London on Mother’s Day raising awareness of the issues women face - what do you Dare to Do?

“I had never ever spoken about my past to anyone before, but I felt the need to speak to someone for advice as my situation was not getting better. I rang MYH...Just speaking to somebody, who listened without judgement, has opened up doors for me which will never be closed.”
