Women as prevention actors in the community
The Diotima Centre worked with 15 women from migrant communities to prevent gender-based violence. Watch the video.

Women can play an important role as prevention actors in their communities! Loyal to this belief, we worked for a year with 15 women living in Greece from different countries: Ukraine, Albania, Georgia, Morocco, Iran, Uganda and Congo.

Our goal was to empower and strengthen their skills so they can support women who have suffered gender-based violence and we succeeded!

In the final phase of their training, the women participated in peer learning activities with staff from 13 agencies. The latter were informed about the gaps and omissions in support for migrant & refugee women and the needs of communities, paving the way for a culture of equal support.
