Newsletter

October 2021
Mojatu Foundation is a charity dedicated solely to supporting women and girls. We understand that this past month has been distressing for many women as male violence has dominated the news, and we know that beyond each headline is a real woman, and millions like her, who suffer on a daily basis. As an organisation, we are fighting to protect women and girls through our ongoing projects and programmes.

This months newsletter includes our latest projects, news, courses and events for women and girls from our organisation, partners and beyond💜.

Help Stop Spiking
There have recently been online reports of spiking made by many young women and girls whilst on nights out.

This Petition is a call for an urgent review into spiking organised by the movement 'I've Been Spiked'. It demands the government requires bars, clubs and pubs to take greater precautions in order to prevent spiking, increase education around spiking and the laws surrounding it, make testing more available, and put in place arrangements to provide aftercare for those who have been spiked.

Together we can do something about spiking.

FGM Support
We continue to raise awareness about FGM and a range of other issues including, forced marriage, modern-day slavery and domestic violence through our outreach work, reaching isolated groups who currently have limited relationships with other communities, organisations, and authorities.

How safe do you feel in Nottingham City Centre? 
The Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Caroline Henry, has commissioned the Safer Streets Survey to hear the views of women and girls on how they feel in public spaces. This includes what makes them feel safe or unsafe, their confidence in reporting incidents to the police, and what measures might increase safety and feelings of safety in Nottingham City Centre.

This survey will help inform the Commissioner’s bids for national funding to improve women’s safety as well as her new Plan to tackle crime in Nottinghamshire. 

If you have a spare moment and feel able to, please answer the survey below. You can leave it at any time and there will be support at the end for anyone affected by the subjects raised.
