Germany: 3 projects

In order to come closer to our aim of a world without violence for girls and women, in Germany we are campaigning actively to ensure that violations of human rights and the causes of gender-based violence are clearly identified and named. Furthermore, we are helping 90 women from our Afghan partner organisation to make a new life for themselves in Germany.

This makes it even more important for our partner organisations to continue their work.
