Stichting Our Bodies Our Voice aims to raise awareness about sexual violence and transform the consent culture within universities to create a safer environment for students and staff alike. We believe in the necessity of fostering skills of empathy, active listening and critical introspection within universities.
To achieve our mission we run grassroots focused projects at universities, working with students to run events and campaigns, and effecting cultural transformation through workshops.Our workshops give participants knowledge on what they can do to support survivors and help dismantle the stigma around sexual violence. We also create a safe space for an intimate discussion about participants’ attitudes towards sex, boundaries and consent.
Donations go to our foundation's bank account and will be used to support our on-going projects. The donations can help us train students become skilled facilitators, support our student board(s) awareness campaigns on sexual violence in universities, strengthen collaborative projects (such as our upcoming support group for survivors based in Amsterdam) and much more. As a non-profit organization, all donations will be used towards achieving our purpose - helping prevent sexual violence and transforming the consent culture within universities.
