    Weʼve raised £735 to Empower women with self defence whistles, raising awareness on domestic violence and rape through the creative power of arts. #blowthebullet

    London, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 24th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The aim of the project is to offer women a simple but effective measure of self-protection in the form of a self-defence whistle made from empty bullet cases. These are personally crafted into beautiful pendent necklaces and worn as a piece of protective jewellery. The concept behind the empty bullets is to utilise an item that has negative connotations, (violence and death) and transforming it into a project of empowerment and freedom.

    Victims of domestic violence and rape are not always armed with self-defence training, so my objective is to equip them with a physical item that can pack a punch in a dangerous situation by startling the perpetrator and attracting attention.

    The project was due to launch in Sri Lanka august this year however due to the sensitive political situation there currently, I have been advised not to distribute them as this could potentially place the project and people working with these communities in jeopardy.

    The theme for this years project in Sri Lanka is 'Female empowerment'. Although the whistles cannot be distributed physically this time around, I will be sharing Capoeira movement techniques which concentrate of self defence. I will also be assisting and running creative art workshops.

    Future prospects:
    With enough funds raised, I plan to run female empowerment projects which will consist of:
    Counselling, Self-defence classes, Educational programmes geared towards the art therapies.

    Following Sri Lanka
    I intend to take this project to remote areas of The Democratic Republic of the Congo, in particular Eastern provinces where women continue to be vulnerable targets of violence.

    Your help, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.

      An amazing project Dinarta. Here my small little part to help. I remember of the words of Henry Ford. "To do more for the world than the world does for you - that is success."
