Self-help groups

The self-help groups (SHG) at Amnesty for Women e.V. offer women a protected space in which they can talk about their migration experience, their family situation and their work and life conditions in Germany.


Many topics are of common concern, for example:


  • Domestic violence
  • Mental stress
  • Health issues
  • Educational problems
  • Break up and divorce
  • Fear of the future
  • Homesickness
  • Isolation
  • Integration


The women come together in groups and have the opportunity to work on their problems and find solutions jointly. They help each other and come in social contact with women with the same cultural background.
