Battered women and children in life Rehabilitation, their need in resource is US$80 million Battered Women (Based on 70 thousand persons Rent US$333/M × 1/4 Independence Need × 18y-30y reproductive women (100 thousand person) US$70million = Child Care US$333/M US$10million Total US$80 Million!

  8. 8. The Outcome of Lack of Resources for Life Rehabilitation for Women and Children who is Victims of Violence  Government can only focus on crisis management and overlook rehabilitation.  Battered women and children are prone to falling into the cycle of abuse.  Each victim of abuse causes social loss of about US$ 10 thousands.  The annual investment of US$ 13 million by the government is not cost-efficient.  It is afraid that the governmental help and support for battered women and children will continuously stay in passive social welfare model, just like fixing a broken net. .

  11. 11. Astonishing Creation of Social Value = US$ 20,000 per person! If the society can invest in US$ 1866 more per victim of abuse, we can create a better society!
  12. 12. Study of the World Bank Investment in Women is Smart Economy- Once a women is employed, the whole family of the women take benefit from it.
  13. 13. CEDAw  Article 11: free choice of profession and employment, the right to promotion, job security and all benefits and conditions of service and the right to receive vocational training and retraining, including apprenticeships, advanced vocational training and recurrent training
  14. 14. International Labor Organization)(ILO)  A study from the International Labor Organization points out that in 2008, globally there were 6.3% female laborers there were waiting to be employed, while there were 5.9% male laborers that were waiting to be employed.

  17. 17. How about Labor Participation Rate of Battered Women? •There’s no research on this issue, but we could imagine___ •From GOH’s experience of service, battered women are often traumatized greatly by physical or verbal abuse, and lost their self-esteem and self-confidence, which impacts their capability in employment and their ability to adapt to a work place. Hence, they might lost their work or become long term unemployed.
  18. 18. GOH Employment Program for Battered Women  With appropriate support and assistance, women who are victims of abuse can change from a dependent of social welfare and a negative influence of social productivity to become a productive worker, creating positive social productive value and support herself and her dependents. 80% Employment Rate! Negative to Postive Productivity
  19. 19. GOH Initiatives:  To Enterprises: Requests to release more employment opportunities for vulnerable women.  To Government: to release more resources to help vulnerable women become employed. Include facilities, tools, employment social worker, subsidies for salary, child care emergency aid, housing aid…etc. To reduce the obstacles of employment for vulnerable women
