Charity of the Month – Olive Pathway

Gender-based violence (GBV) is an issue very close to my heart. I have witnessed the damaging effects of GBV. It is one of those things you have to experience to really understand how damaging it is. Many women suffer in silence and endure years upon years of abuse. These women suffer mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially. Many of the women experiencing GBV see no way out which is really disturbing.

This is why I am so passionate about GBV and why I support amazing charities tackling domestic violence. The charity of the month is Olive Pathway. If you follow my Facebook page and Twitter, you should know about this great charity already, since I am forever sharing their posts on my social media pages.

Olive Pathway is a charity tackling domestic abuse and gender-based violence within black and minority ethnic groups in Greater Manchester and beyond. The charity’s mission is to eradicate domestic violence and eliminate inequality.

  1. I have shared your post on my Facebook page. I am a big supporter of Womens Aid/IDAS who we can never repay for all they did for us when we fled the ex in 2000. I give a regular donation to them and do what I can.

    Thank you for the info. I had not heard of them before. I will read up more later

  2. hi let me ask a question.. what is the necessity of sticking our self in one niche.. can we write with all of our engagements in out blogging.. it’s my sincere doubt as a beginner.. i really don’t know even this question is also a mistake.. whatever expecting reply.. stay safe..

    • You don’t have to stick to one niche. I don’t stick to a niche. I pretty much blog about what I like. However, for new bloggers, I always advise them to start off with a niche to grow their blog and after a year or so, they can implement other niches if they choose to.
