About Women's Net Saya Saya

"Saya" means ‘I’ in Indonesian language. When "I (survivor of IPV)" am connected with another "I (survivor of IPV)", we believe that "I" can live my life again. We would like women to re-build their lives, regain themselves and connect with others. Thus, we named our organization Saya-Saya. A society without violence is a society where women can live safely, and children and men also live with ease. We believe that supporting women and children survivors of violence in the community will lead to a society where women and men, human beings and nature co-exist peacefully. With this mission, we strive to contribute to widening the circle of support network.
