Constance Singam tearing as she speaks about what AWARE means to her. 

“Really what was so wonderful about AWARE, is that 25 years have been 25 years of friendship, support and empowerment. I grew in AWARE, and I know what it is to be an AWARE member. And that’s the sad part of it…that trust is gone.”

That is what AWARE is, we empower each other, we support each other. And that friendship…which is why I was there these 24 years and why I keep coming back because of that.

AWARE is a feminist organization. And what are feminist values? We give a chance, we respect, we support each other, we empower each other. Yes, you’re right, I am saddened by what’s happening, and those values aren’t being respected, and that culture is not being respected”.
