We were thrilled to welcome Brazilian Olympic swimmer Joanna Maranhão to ReVive last week. She came to talk to our girls about how she was sexually abused as a nine year old… and how, despite still living with the effects of that abuse, was able to overcome it to become a very successful athlete.
Her talk was challenging and inspiring.

We’re sorry for not putting this news up sooner here (it’s been up for a while on our social media sites) but the extension is ready! Yay! The space is amazing and it’s already being used by two groups to run dance sessions with the girls. We’ve also used the space for staff meetings, training sessions and even cinema nights for the girls. Our Technical Team – psychologist, social worker along with a few others – have moved into their new office and they’re also making the most of the other room – a private meeting room – to speak with the girls and their families.
Thanks to all who made this extension possible!
