This is a project that tackles the pressures some women, especially migrant and refugee women face from society, communities, families and friends to adhere to particular beauty standards. This has led many women and young girls to develop serious mental health issues including eating disorders, negative body image, and risk taking behaviours by engaging in harmful practices.
In fact a research by Liptember revealed that 38% of women from migrant and refugee backgrounds are experiencing negative body image.
This Project is not yet funded and Wellsprings for Women is looking for funding. So, if you are interested in supporting this program please email Dalal
