The WRR team is composed of members based in Denmark, Belgium and Greece. Among us are experts in tech (including certified trainers in new technologies), in project management, and legal and advocacy experts. Mina Jaf, WRR’s founder, is being increasingly recognised for her advocacy work at the local, national, European and international level. She advocates for the rights of refugee women, and is a role model for many. We believe the combination of experiences and expertise in our team, and our commitment to refugee women’s empowerment, make us more than qualified to carry this project.
