Amnesty for Women e.V.


is a non-profit organisation, established in Hamburg 1986 as a counselling centre and international meeting point for women.


As a human rights organisation, 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, women trafficking) which women are subjected to due to their gender and being migrants.

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 are offered in the following languages: German, English, Spanish, French and Thai.
