About us

Where European foreign policy fails, there are direct consequences for people's living conditions.
We combine theoretical inputs with practical project work. Conscious thinking AND direct action lays the foundation for positive changes and a solidarity-based transnational community.

A legal and community center
for refugee women and families

Our partner association " Yaşamak Sosyal Alan ve Dayanışma Derneği " in Izmir opened the gates of their community center in September 2020. It is an open, supportive, safe and participatory place with a strong focus on the needs and empowerment of female refugees in Izmir. Wothouq eV supports the implementation of various offers in close partnership. We offer both legal and psychosocial support and promote the implementation of basic human rights.

The "Legal & Community Center - Yasmak" (= Turkish for life) combines indispensable legal casework to protect basic rights with everyday needs in order to strengthen community structures and support.

Dear Supporters, 
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!
Your Wothouq-Team
