EU-Project REC SARAH
SARAH:Safe, Aware, Resilient, Able and Heard – protecting and supporting migrant women victims of gender-based violence
The SARAH project builds on our project results from the CCM-GBV project (2017-2019). The aim of the project is to inform refugee and migrant women victims of gender-based violence about their victims' rights and to facilitate their access to support services.
Within the framework of the two-year project (January 2021 - December 2022), the following project measures will be implemented:
1. psychosocial counselling and the organisation of info cafés.
2. data collection and monitoring to determine the extent of gender-based violence experienced by refugee and migrant women;
3. capacity building through transnational exchange meetings and national trainings as well as network meetings to train professionals in dealing with gender-based violence;
4. public relations work. For example, a small podcast series for refugee and migrant women will be produced and the project results will be shared with key stakeholders.
We will implement the two-year project together with the Italian Refugee Council (CIR) (Italy), the Greek Refugee Council (GRC) (Greece), Settlement Kupio (Setlement) (Finland) and the European Regional Institute in the United Nations Criminal Justice and Crime Prevention (HEUNI) (Finland).
In the SARAH-podcast series migrant women discuss gender-based violence, and encourage others to speak up. In each of the podcasts (one in Arabic, Farsi, Somali and English) different marvellous women share their thoughts. The podcasts are available in Soundcloud and Spotify.
The Impact Tool is also available in German, Italian, Greek and Finnish and can be downloaded from here: https://heuni.fi/-/sarah-impact-toolkit
