Challenge

Women are especially vulnerable to abuse and are among the most vulnerable members of society in post-disaster situations - and often, in daily life too. So what can we do about it? We remind them how strong and resilient they are. 3.6 million Syrian refugees living in Turkey are women and children. Girl's access to education remains a problem, young girls are susceptible to early marriages and women in general are confined to the household, unable to participate in social/professional life.

Solution

We deliver 'self-care' and 'return to school' packs, offer awareness/information sessions and with these, aim to call women to action, to invest their own futures and to develop the skills for better self-care and development. For both women and girls, we deliver self-respect and reliance sessions that boost their mental health. In addition, we provide empowering information with our 'civil rights' and 'gender equality' themed sessions.

Long-Term Impact

We deliver vocational trainings that help them gain skills to achieve a sustainable improvement in their lives. Especially focusing on mothers, we deliver sessions that provide information on long-term effects of 'early marriages.' In addition, we provide empowering information with our 'civil rights' and 'gender equality' themed sessions.
