"LOVR made me know more about myself, and opened up a lot of opportunities for me to improve. It initially seemed to me that my goal is to learn how to better help others, but what I didn't expect was how much I benefited from having a space to share about topics and perspectives that I have never even shared with my family or loved ones."
"The engagement gave me the opportunity to reflect on the experiences of various stakeholders in the case of sexual harm, as well as to learn from other participants. It has also opened my eyes to restorative approaches for the first time and challenged my existing perspectives and thoughts. It was a fruitful and unique conversation that I could be a part of!"
