My name is Tal Amar I am 22-year-old and I am jewelry designer. I have a big desire to donate to women in shelters after sexual assault, abuse or violence in their past. I'd really like to get to these shelters with the necessary equipment and teaching these women to design jewelry. As part of the treatment of women, giving women to do things for themselves, to talk with other people, to create with people in order to allay the fear that these wholesalers women.
Each lesson takes 2-3 hours, which the women take's the jewelry they made for themselves
My idea is essentially to teach them a lesson, once a week, free of charge.
to make this dream come true, I found a number of shelters that I can volunteer in, all have left is to have fund this project.
The project costs are: $ 6-8 per jewelry. Each lesson has about 20 women so the cost is approximately $ 150 per class.
The cost of a weekly lesson per shelter is $ 7800/year, average of 600 $/month per shelter.
Currently ,I am unable to fund this project, because in Israel, the salary is $ 6/hour,
which amounts to an annual salary of 14,500$ before living expense
In my opinion, if there will be more people around the world who come to these shelters and help women in all sorts of ways, people who donate time and their knowledge, those women were faster than they are, and think less about their
troubles when they expose to a different world and different from what they knew when they were in contact with people
Maybe not all women are affected equally, but the goal at the end of the day is that they can take these jewels for themselves. Those women who often do not have much money either afford jewelry
In addition to the emotional troubles of these women also have financial trouble, I had met with a young woman, 30 years old, who came to Israel with two twin girls, and her husband, the woman was abused physically and verbally, from her husband,after few years she moved into the shelter with 2 daughters, the shelter was at her house and that she is currently lived with two daughters in rental apartment and raise those 7 years old girls
Lastly I'd like to share with you , that you can get background to the project. a few
years ago I fell victim of sexual assault, I got out from the situation i have been because of my love to make jewelry and the love and support I received from people who often I don't even know. I got out from the grey and dark world that I live in a world full of colors and ideas with little love and support.
I hope I can fulfill this project and give love and support these women and art in jewelry will affect them as much as it affected me.
