This US-based Cooperation Circle (CC) is comprised of members from different parts of the world working hard to end violence against women. Although many live far apart, each individual acts as an ambassador of peace and love within their respective communities. Circle members, many of whom are based in California, meet to discuss domestic violence with leaders and female victims of abuse in their communities, several hosting speaking events in public schools. During phone and in-person meetings they learn about the socioeconomic conditions of women in different parts of the world. The Circle also works with children to instill values of respect and love, encouraging the participation of men and recognizing them as part of the solution. As a result of these efforts, Hope in Life hopes to create heightened awareness in real and virtual communities about the causes and effects of domestic violence and how to avoid it in a domestic partnership. Increased participation from men, women and children on how to proactively tackle issues related to violence is also expected. The organization’s website, hopeinlifefoundation.org, posts research to share about the seriousness of this issue.
