Hi Patricia, this sounds like a great way to address the problem. I especially like how you plan to assist displaced entrepreneurs in addition to local individuals. How do you plan to ensure that displaced individuals are represented equally in your program? Best of luck with this!

Hi Hannah, I love this method of dealing with this huge problem! This a great way to use the knowledge and experience of local women to help others. Will you work to change the mindsets of men as well? I think that your idea of providing counseling to the perpetrators is excellent; however, would you consider working with younger boys (perhaps teenagers?): getting them to help take action against domestic violence they notice and avoid doing the same? Best of luck!

Hi Andrew, this seems like a really interesting and potentially very helpful project. I feel that unfortunately, this problem isn't talked about often and is usually overlooked. Will you be developing and producing products other than the drum seeder during the workshops? If the participants come up with products that would be helpful, will you follow up and assist them in their creation? Best of luck!
