Violence against Women and Girls’ Prevention and Response

Through nurturing their voices, we break barriers and challenge stereotypes, paving the way for transformative leadership and a more inclusive society. Together, we empower women and girls to embrace their inner strength and shape a brighter future

In numerous regions of Iraq and Kurdistan, girls unfortunately face barriers to education and are often unable to complete their studies. Child and forced marriages continue to occur, while physical and emotional violence is prevalent, perpetrated by fathers, brothers, and husbands. Our organization is dedicated to preventing violence against women and girls. We strive to create a protective environment where they are shielded from violence, have their rights upheld, and can access necessary services to ensure they live with dignity. We offer a safe space specifically designed for women and girls, where we provide survivor-centered support through case management. We aim to ensure that survivors receive the necessary assistance they need. Within our organization’s projects, we also connect survivors to other available services, as outlined below. In cases where certain services are not available within our organization’s interventions, we additionally provide referrals to ensure survivors can access the support they require.

“I used to be a shy and hesitant girl, always hiding inside my tent, afraid to step out and interact with people. But then, something incredible happened. My neighborhood friends, who were attending these amazing life skill workshops, couldn’t stop talking about how transformative the sessions were. Their enthusiasm sparked a curiosity within me, and when I discovered that the workshops had gone online, I made up my mind to join in. And let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made! These sessions not only helped me break out of my shell, but they also empowered me to embrace my true potential. The knowledge and skills I gained were truly life-changing. In fact, I was so inspired that I even decided to participate in leadership programs as well. Now, I can confidently say that I am a completely different person. I’m no longer afraid to walk through crowded places or engage in meaningful conversations with others. These workshops have opened doors for me that I never even knew existed. So, if you’re looking for an opportunity to grow, learn, and unlock your hidden potential, I highly recommend joining these life skill workshops and leadership programs. Trust me, they can make a world of difference in your life, just like they did in mine!”
