Our project is aimed for empowerment of Syrian adolescent girls at ages 12-18 years, to build up knowledge and skills for self-protection from violence, sexual abuse, early marriage and early sexuality and awareness about their bodies, women rights and health rights. The project will reach 40 Syrian adolescent girls by providing 6 interactive workshops addressing the young girls on empowerment by 5 Syrian women who will get ToT by Mavi Kalem trainers.
Struggling with the new challenging circumstances that Syrian families are facing in the hosting country, Syrian young girls often contribute to their families' coping mechanisms by giving care for siblings,helping mother in daily routine, if ever, in low paid jobs before forcibly agreeing arranged marriages at incredibly early ages even at 12 years old. Syrian girls often stay in their household, do not blend in the new society or discover alternative ways for resilience.
