If you’ve heard the saying “give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” – This is what the main culture around the organization is based on. In addition, the group is non-judgmental, non-denominational and all-inclusive. As long as there’s a woman in need of assistance; Get Up Woman’s aim is to get all the help that she needs.
Do not ask the question; "Why didn't she leave him?" rather ask; “WHY DID HE HURT HER?"
Don’t say; "Why was she alone in the dark?" instead you should say; "WHY WAS HE?"
