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.
A team of 7 young people, gathered in the Center for Girls almost a year ago, performed 21 educational theaters in 2022 as part of the project "Protecting Youth in Nis from the Human Trafficking", in ten high schools and one elementary school in Nis. Six hundred and nine young people attended the theaters and had the opportunity to actively participate.
About twenty activists and fellow citizens participated, on a rainy day, in the street action "Rape is a crime", which was organized across the street from the Basic Court in Niš by the Center for Girls, on the occasion of the inadequate treatment of the institutions in the investigation of the case of rape in Niš.
More than 5,000 people saw the performance "Women's Graveyard", which we performed in Obrenovićeva Street in Niš, on the occasion of two more femicides that happened in the span of just eight days.
