In February 2021, after a year-long project funded by the SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation, the Amal Center for Women launched a “Toolkit to Strengthen Listeners.”  These “Listeners” are women who serve as informal sources of support for their peers, and are invaluable to our local collectivity. In situations of difficulty, whether concerning domestic violence, mental health struggles, or family conflict, they are an invisible frontline, and key stakeholders at our center, and this toolkit is our investment in their often overlooked efforts. Designed as a form of community intervention, this toolkit aims to develop their capacities, build their skills, and expand their resources.
