With so many men injured or killed in war, women have become the primary breadwinners in many refugee families. Unfortunately, these mothers, daughters, and widows don’t know the local language, suffer trauma, isolation, depression, and are barred from practicing former professions in host countries.
Help us provide a healing community space for women that also supports economic development.
By offering workshops centered around empowerment and dignity, the center provides women with the tools to regain control of their lives. Psycho-social programs rebuild what was once lost during war:
trust, community, self esteem, joy.
At the request of the women and with the generosity of our donors, we recently purchased eight sewing machines for the center. The women are learning how to make textiles, a major local industry.
Community is essential to healing and creating successful new lives. Together, women can share their struggles and triumphs, lessons and love. Sharing tea and rebuilding normalcy are as essential as learning new skills. There is nothing like the power of a group of women with a common goal to achieve seemingly impossible accomplishments.
We also have a small emergency distribution center here for basic feminine and baby supplies for women in need.
