Protection and Education for Women and Children

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The project is part of help alliance since 2018.

The aim of the project is to accompany women, children and adolescents on their way to an independent and self-determined life. Many of them who came to the project were previousely victims of violence. In particular, gender-based violence is a common problem that women in Ethiopia suffer from. The project provides them with a safe place where they can process their traumas.

To help these women and children we need your donation.

Details & Successes

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The project is located in the heart of the Ethiopian capital. Here women who had to flee from violence, find support. For the employees of the center, both the physical and the mental health of the women and children is important. Individual and group therapies allow women to process what they have been experienced and so strengthen their self-esteem.
Various educational opportunities enable women to built a self-determined future. The aim is to strengthen them to that extent that they will be able advocate for their rights by themselves in the futur.

Also the children of these women should receive support on their educational path. This support should also be available after their mothers left the center and are able to take care of themselves. This also includes the possibility to use the assistance of the center-owned kindergarten, which enables the mothers to go about a job during the day.

As a result of the so-called “refugee crisis”, many former sponsors ended their support and instead focused on refugee projects in their immediate environment. Increasingly, organizations have been supported to combat the effects of flight but not its causes. Through supporting this project’s work we’re trying to fill this gap.
