Challenge

Once Eritrean asylum seekers make the traumatic journey from Eritrea, through Sudan and Sinai, they have already faced multiple types of torture, kidnapping and rape. There are approximately 40,000 asylum seekers in Israel who are granted no health care, no access to higher education, low-wages, long hours, discrimination and isolation. Women have it especially difficult, serving as caretakers and breadwinners. Estimates say that there are nearly 370 Eritrean women in prostitution.

Solution

The Eritrean Women's Community Center is the only grassroots non-profit in Israel dedicated to bettering the lives of female Eritrean and Sudanese Asylum Seekers. Under our Women's Enrichment programming, we offer a variety of language, vocational, and educational courses to promote career and personal development to these women. Our programming uniquely provides women with the ability to make a stable income and become self-sufficient, gaining self-confidence and community along the way.

Long-Term Impact

Historically, the long term impact of our vocational enrichment programming is, undoubtedly, giving women the ability to run a small business, equipped with new skills and financial literacy. This means that women can be financially independent and support herself and her family without fear of sinking deeper into poverty or social isolation.
