In our Health and Education Centers we provide women with a safe space and access to a sense of community. We provide mental health support, health empowerment courses and access to essential services, and vocational training to thousands of women.

According to Mohammed Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner, the reparation of vulnerable women victims of violence is only complete if it involves socio-economic reparation. The dimensions of psychological support and economic assistance offered in our centers are therefore intertwined.
