By contributing to AWAM’s Sexual Harassment Awareness Redress & Prevention (SHARP) Program, you will allow us to provide these trainings for free to the people who can’t afford them but need them the most. We aim to reach out to pockets of Malaysian society (non-English speaking communities like the Orang Asli estate workers, students in smaller schools). Your funds will pay for materials (posters and etc.) for the communities to use as long as they need it.
Sexual Harassment is one of society’s most dangerous but silent contemporary issue. It is reported that over one-third of Malaysian women have been sexually harassed with a majority of cases happening out in public spaces. Unfortunately, this is due to the lack of a safe and accountable way of reporting sexual harassment cases. While there are laws in the employment sector that touches on sexual harassment misconduct in the workplace, sadly for everyone else who is not in the workforce (housewives, students and etc.) the limitation of the Penal Code on sexual harassment makes it difficult and expensive for survivors to get justice.Following KPWKM’s initiative to table a standalone Sexual Harassment Bill, our program will educate the public to take ownership in safeguarding their community that directly supports the Sexual Harassment Bill.
To date, AWAM has successfully conducted SHARP Workshops with local and international companies, NGOs, and schools. We have spoken on forums on sexual harassment throughout Malaysia as subject matter experts.
