Our Programs Our programs aim to strengthen the social, emotional, and economic competencies of disadvantaged and abused young women, providing them with a sense of self-worth, and with the opportunities to experience a full range of life options through self-empowerment, education and training. The clients we support have been discarded and undervalued by society, who are survivors of abuse, trauma, neglect and persecution. Our aim is to support and provide tools to these vulnerable young women in their journey toward self-empowerment—social, economic and emotional. Our approach is trauma-informed and based on caring for the whole person because the complex mental/emotional strains on the women in our care can only be addressed by looking at ALL of their needs. We start by creating a warm, secure and non-judgmental environment in which our clients begin to feel valued, have their lives affirmed, and be treated with respect and dignity. Our holistic program offers: Psychological and personal development through trauma-informed workshops and interventions, social and recreational activities to facilitate social integration and readjustment, and structured education. Interventions are gender sensitive, rights based and family/community centred, and equip them with skills for a successful future. Empowerment workshops foster their understanding of individual/human rights and civic matters, while the education program strengthens their computer, language and critical-thinking skills. Opportunities for further education and training are offered to those who want to continue education at university, pursue vocational training, or train as peer-educators. Shelter is provided to those clients who are “at risk”. To learn more about our programs tailored to Greece, please click here.
