Wothouq e.V. is an independent non-profit organization, located in Leipzig. Having been involved in various migration related projects at the EU's external borders, we have directly witnessed the EU-Turkey Agreements' dramatic affect on migrants arriving to Greece. The results of our research trips to its counterpart Turkey in the following time and the experiences gained through of our work in legal-aid projects crucially influenced the project-concept: based on our awareness that legal, psychological and social barriers interact to create an insufferable reality for female* refugees, everyday problems should be addressed in coordination. Only this mean, the projects’ aim - to tackle the lacking enforcement and protection of fundamental rights on asylum, gender and social related issues (root cause of current situation) can be reached. Starting from the basis thus created, through language and skill trainings, women will gain the tools required to autonomously exercise their rights.
we would like to thank you once more at this point for your incredible support which enables us to actually built up the Wothouq - Women's Legal & Community Center with the beginning of the new year. With your support we could not only ensure the amount we are required to contribute from own financial means (in order to receive funding from foundations) but moreover additionally could finance a relevant part of our rental costs and therefore already have rented a center-building which we are currently renovating. Thank you for your solidarity and support! We are looking forward to the centers' opening in January and will keep you updated about former development here at place on our homepage and facebook.
All the best for the new year!
