Despite making up 50% of the world’s refugees and migrants, gender is rarely considered as part of the challenge for displaced women. Mina Jaf, Founder & director of Women Refugee Route, says that the realities of a woman’s experience as a refugee or migrant must be recognised and integrated into policy making.
The coming month marks Women Refugee Route’s two year anniversary. We would like to celebrate this occasion with you in Brussels on 7 March from 18:30 – 21:00 o’clock at Boom Café.
Women Refugee Route (WRR)’s mission is to start a positive cycle in which refugee women are considered not as simple recipients of services and support, but as actors of change for themselves and their communities. WRR projects aim at empowering refugee women to raise their own voice on the matters that concern them, and to support them to use their potential to the fullest with a view to generate creativity and change. Taking into account their mobility, WRR trains refugee women on advocacy and empowerment, and provide them with tools they can use anywhere to find employment and integrate in their host countries.

It is possible to become engaged through uncommitted donations but also by funding concrete actions, trainings or equipment. We very much appreciate your donations if you want to support our work financially.
