The Center for Girls was founded on April 15, 1998, on the initiative of two volunteers of SOS Helpline for Women and Children Victims of Violence. The aim of its foundation was to improve the social position of young women through their education and emancipation.
THE MISSION of the Center for Girls is to empower children, girls and women through support, education, activism and creativity.
We finished the campaign 16 days of activism in Vranje with the performance of the play "I am an emotional being". We thank the Director of the Centre for Social Work, Dragana Arsić and the representative Danijela Milosavljević for an opportunity to pass our messages to Vranje audience on the International Day of Human Rights. Texts on violence against women were heard by 80 people in the Army House.
The names of women who were killed in the last year in Serbia talked about the state of family and partner violence in Serbia from our bodies at today's street action. At least 28 women were killed by their husbands, partners, sons, ex-partners and grandchildren.
Despite the wind and the cold, on November 29, we spent the night in the main street of Niš, with banners in hands. Why? Because it is the International Human Rights Defenders Day, one of the important dates within the campaign of 16 days of activism against violence against women.
