For members still struggling with the language, we assit in making necessary calls, read and write their letters. We also give them them access to tools and resources to get back on their feet during and after crisis situations.
Campaigning and advocacy on issues that matter to women of African heritage in Germany
From our experiences, African Women in Germany are often left clueless about their rights and duties for many years. These people migrated to have a better life, yet in a foreign country where they do not speak the language, they feel even more lost. Some do get depressed because they have no one to rely on for help. Hence, we advocate for them. Since changes are necessary we became their voices and organise campaigns to increase this awareness in the society as well as in our communities
