Starfish's reflections for 2019

A taste of our yearly report on what we have been doing. For more details click on the link to read our whole newsletter. Don't forget to grab a cup of coffee as it is a long one

 

The self-defence training for refugee women in Moria was very successful. Women are one of the most vulnerable groups inside the camp and often the victim of sexual harassment and violence. Starfish’s goal was to provide them with the necessary strategies to protect themselves.  Building on the women’s shared experience, the programme taught them how to defend themselves not only physically but also emotionally, learning to set boundaries, increasing their self-confidence and explore different coping strategies. The women's response to the training has been overwhelmingly positive.
