POSITIVE INTEGRATION

For WIN, Athy, positive integration is when Women are supported to develop their potentials and become Economically, Socially, Culturally, Psychologically, Mentally, Spiritually and Morally empowered to be the best they can be, enhancing the already existing good in all humans and thereby promoting peaceful co-existence.

 

WIN’s five (5) identified key components of Positive Integration  

1.    Labour-Market-Mobility (i.e. actively pursuing economic empowerment; education, qualification recognition, paid employment, starting your own business & involvements in other economic activities leading to reduction/elimination of domestic abuse/violence).

 

2.    Political & Civic participation (i.e. working together as communities or individuals through political and/or non-political actions to protect public values or make a change / changes where and when needed. Actively participating in elections either as registered voters and or candidates, organising voter awareness campaigns, workshops on how proportional representation in election works etc).

 

3.    Spiritual & Mental well being (i.e. Since evidence has shown that people who belong to a faith community, or who hold religious or spiritual beliefs, have better mental health, WIN endeavours to support members and service users requests in this area through posts, linkages and programmed sessions. Members attest to the benefits as including increase in volunteering, social / emotional contributions, sense of belonging to a group, fellowship, optimism, forgiveness, improved moral and ethical considerations, expressions of compassion and most importantly hope)

 

4.    Social Security & Inclusion (WIN’s interest in this area is hinged on building bridges/relationships, exploring shared experiences, carrying out advocacy, enhancing sense of identity and ensuring transparency in these activities in order to promote social security and inclusion, promote / build on cultural and psychological strengths).

 

 

5.    Equality of Space, Participation & Outcome (i.e. creating a space/platform that enables everyone to start well on the same starting point thereby encourages healthy participation and outcomes commensurate to individual / collective efforts).

  

WIN ATHY’s  VALUES

· Positive Integration

· Innovative thinking and courage

· Practical solutions such as reaching out, information, education, training,  social inclusion events etc

· Integrity and sustainability

· Open to goodness from all over the world

 

Our VISION is

To develop a positively integrated community where all citizens are equal, respected, appreciated, celebrated and empowered to attain their full potential for the common good.
