For Sally, who is the Vice Project Director, being part of the Halo Hub is wanting to “make people aware that this isn’t just a “poor” country issue, it effects everyone. It’s about giving support and voice to those that don’t have it, and overall I’m passionate about ending social injustice”.

She hopes the society can give support to people and create a discussion.
Bronte is the Head of Social Media and joined the Hub to educate people on the cultural issues’ victims face. She believes education allows herself and her peers to raise awareness and speak for those who have been affected by abuse and may be afraid or unable to speak for themselves.

Mais says "as violence against women and harmful traditions are still happening in many parts of the world, the need to have projects such as Halo is vital to protect human rights and dignity. There is no more legitimate cause to support and I did not hesitate for a second to volunteer with such a dedicated, and trustworthy team. Nothing would feel more right than raising the awareness of public and giving a second and better chance for survivors to flourish".
