Association

 

Amnesty for Women - Städtegruppe Hamburg e. V. is a non-profit organization, established in Hamburg in 1986 as a counselling centre and international meeting point for women.


As a human right organization the main goals of Amnesty for Women e.V. are to raise awareness about and to fight against isolation, segregation, repression and all kinds of violence (e. g. domestic violence, trafficking in women) which women are subjected to due to their gender and being migrants.

Amnesty for Women e.V. works for sustainable improvements in the political and legal situation for migrants in Germany and the integration of female migrants at the local, national and international level. We aim to raise awareness in society about issues surrounding migration and the presence of female migrants in the country. We work together with each individual, helping them to find ways to solve the problems with which they are faced.

Amnesty for Women e.V. seeks to ease the living and working conditions of migrant women, by supporting them and giving them strength to make choices independently. We offer these women support through "helping them to help themselves" and work to develop collaborative solutions. All legal advice and psychological/social counselling is offered in the women's native languages.
