For friends do not let friends harm others.”Denise was interviewed in October 2012 for OABI's Beyond Abuse Radio on 'Healing through Creativity - Movement and Dance'. The interviewer was Misa Leonessa, a USA-based radio presenter, professional speaker and life coach.

OABI is embarking on some wonderful projects. However, we are looking for sponsors to assist us with our programs so that these projects will be brought to life. Our projects are as follows and further details about each project can be submitted to you upon request:
As an organization we are asking you to help us by financially donating towards the documentary project or by asking persons to make a contribution. The first phase is carded to begin January 5th 2013. The estimated cost of the documentary project is £12,000 (UK pounds). For this project we have some national and international Professionals who have made a commitment and are offering their services for free, however we need to cover travelling cost and all the other cost for the documentary.
We also need to get the equipment and the finances for the pre-production, production, and post-production and distribution stages. This documentary series upon its completion will be submitted to international film festivals including Trinidad and Tobago. It will also be screened in Britain and the USA.
This project is necessary for public awareness, prevention, and action persons need to see and hear the reality of abuse, way too many persons are being brutalized and their lives damaged because of child abuse, rape, domestic violence, human trafficking, and bullying.
In making your decision to sponsor financially, and or a piece of equipment for this project, please be assured that your contribution would certainly help to make this project the success that it ought to be.
Thank you in advance for your benevolence and compassion.
