‘Tree of Hope’ for The Haven and the 16 Days of Activism

Tree of HopeIt is currently the 16 days of activism across the world and you may have seen Wolverhampton going Orange recently in support of the international campaign against violence against women and children.

Service Users, Volunteers and Peer Mentors at The Haven have created a ‘Tree of Hope’ as part of the 'Orange the World Campaign' to raises awareness in the city and the Tree is currently being displayed at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

The Tree is a representation of Light, Hope, and new beginnings. The pot is black to symbolise how the darkness consumes domestic abuse victims and how they feel they suffer in silence.

The bark represents the victims struggle and acknowledges they are survivors of their experiences and the leaves are filled with wishes for their futures and are at the top of the tree where the light touches.

The women hope this tree of hope will inspire others to come forward and to know they never have to suffer in silence.

“With every step we get stronger, with every branch hope rises up. We can make it through anything together. No one is alone.” Said Priscilla Chana – Peer Mentor at The Haven.
