ESTHER'S JOURNEY

“When I was younger I thought I had found someone who loved me. Sometimes he did seem to love me. But at other times - after the drugs and the drinking, he became a different person. He would hurt me to the point that I was scared of him. What happened shook me and shattered my self-confidence to rock bottom.

For 8 years I was silent about the abuse, and continued to suffer the emotional scars even after the bruises had long faded. I was afraid people would think I was weak.

In 2014, I went to a conference called One Young World where I heard about other young people overcoming the adversity they had been through. It had a deep effect on me. I couldn’t stop thinking that other people had achieved amazing things and inspired others. I knew I had to do something to help other women and girls who had also gone through abuse.

I set up sTandTall to help women and girls who have been abused and bullied to get back onto their feet, achieve their full potential and sTandTall again."

- Esther Marshall, Founder of sTandTall

OUR MISSION

Quote

 

Our mission is:

To help women and girls who have been abused and bullied to get back onto their feet, achieve their full potential and sTandTall again.

 

We aim to do this by: 

  • Creating a platform where women and girls are able to connect with professionals in order to receive the support they need to get out of an abusive relationship.
  • Creating a chat system for women and girls to reach out in a way that is safe and anonymous, reducing the chances of the perpetrator finding out.
  • Making help more accessible to the public, we hope more women and girls will reach out for advice/support earlier on, preventing the abuse from escalating.
  • Decrease incidents of abuse by providing information for the public to educated themselves and others on the issue.

When I was in an abusive relationship I didn't know where to turn and where to find any information or help. This is the premise of why I have set up sTandTall. I fervently believe in equal rights and work every day to try and make the world a better and safer place for our women and girls.
