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.
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.
The Center for Girls started the campaign 16 days of activism against violence against women with the workshops Prevention of violence against girls and women and the performance of the play “I am an emotional being” at the Textile and Design School in Leskovac.
