The fight against assault is a philanthropic mission Alyssa D. Silos is now proudly a part of! In 2021, Alyssa accomplished being the main donor for a victims shelter in Davao City, Philippines for MOP.
We've teamed up with Mayas Organization Inc. in the Philippines. We want people to believe survivors, get involved, and spread more awareness in their community.
Did you know that someone is assaulted every 98 seconds? And that's just a rough estimate since sexual assault is the most under-reported crime, according to data from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC).
"Sexual violence can have psychological, emotional, and physical effects on a survivor. These effects aren’t always easy to deal with, but with the right help and support they can be managed. Learning more can help you find the best form of care to begin the healing process."- RAINN
SELF DEFENSE KITS.
Which brings us to this: The idea behind our "Self Defense kits" was influenced by survivors worldwide.
Thanks to all your support, Alyssa has saved enough money from her self defense products and is now the major donor to a victims shelter in Davao City, Philippines. The shelter will be opening in late 2021. We are also donating hundreds of our kits to MOP.
"I made this kit for a lot of reasons. Sexual assault is a subject I don't take lightly... too many children, women, and men are affected by it and only until the last few years have we been able to publicly talk about sexual violence without being completely shunned. I'm aware I cannot definitely prevent further assaults with this kit, but even if it gives someone 30 seconds to escape, those 30 seconds could perhaps prevent an attack. And I am honored to give anyone that possibility."- ALYSSA D. SILOS

WHAT NOW? WHAT CAN I DO?
We are volunteering with Maya and her team to help educate children and adults about the issues assault victims face, both with our online platform and in the Philippines. We're also now building a center in the Philippines for the Youth! Cases of domestic, sexual violence against women remain high, and many citizens complain that local governments do not sufficiently protect abused women as required by law.

we both hope to tackle.
