Case stories have the capacity to inspire but also to provoke and to challenge. These stories reflect the experiences and positive outcomes of some inspirational women we have helped. We all have our own story to tell; our history, background and solutions are rarely the same but each story demonstrates how effective interventions towards solutions can be found. They do not represent definitive statements of what it takes to lead a successful independent life without fear, but instead, they aim to encourage and develop reflection on different situations by giving an insight into what has proved beneficial for others. .
