Letter From the President

Dear BTS Family,

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the eminent Break the Silence Board of Directors for having chosen and believing in me to head the team of this great organization that brings hope to survivors and families alike.

Friends, it is an absolute honor and privilege to stand before you on this graceful occasion and utter the most awaited words. Yes, I accept to be the President of the Board of Directors of Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence.

A single head achieves nothing, so I am counting on your support to achieve the growth and goals we have dreamt for BTS.

This is truly a moment to be honored and cherished. I accept this appointment with pride and will give my best efforts to make you proud to have selected me. With the grace of God and the cooperation of fellow members, this includes not only our Board of Directors and Executive Director but to every committee member, volunteer and donor, I will devote my time and energy to the obligations and duties of this post.

There’s an old saying,

Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks.

By the end of 2018, it is my goal and prayer that we will have transformed these possibilities and opportunities into stories of success and triumph.

So again, thank you for selecting me and thank you for all your guidance as we drive our new BTS from here and letting you see the great things we do together.

– Tara Woodlee, “Mama Tara”
