The more access our women have to mental health support, the safer they feel. Post-crisis humanitarian primary aid should not be only food, shelter, and medicines. FREE Drama Therapy sessions are offered to help our women lead healthier lives and cope with the trauma of war. This project aims to support 1 Million Arab Women for Peace to overcome war-affected trauma.
"Wherever there is conflict, women must be part of the solution." Women face important obstacles in gaining access to support and help however, Intisar Foundation ensures continuous support mentally to women affected by war on a longer-term basis through Drama Therapy and in efforts to reach #1MillionArabWomen for Peace. Women should be actors of change, peace-builders, positions of power, and roles of empowerment in the Arab world.
Intisar Foundation is dedicated to the psychological support of women affected by war. Women are a fundamental part of social change, as mothers, educators, and caregivers in the Arab world. Psychological support for refugee women is a greatly overlooked area in the humanitarian sector. We work towards closing this gap by providing gentle, effective, and non-stigmatizing therapy.
For each woman we work with, we reach 6 indirect beneficiaries in the Arab world. Intisar Foundation's vision is for a peaceful Arab world achieved through bottom-up peacebuilding. We are working towards improving and expanding the field of Drama Therapy in the Arab world and reaching 1 million Arab women in the next 20 years.
