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.
Center for Girls signed a contract with UN WOMEN on the occasion of the approved project called "SAFE - Empowered girls and women to feel safer in public spaces in Niš" within the grant scheme "Support to Local Initiatives to Prevent and Improve Response to VAWG in Public Spaces".
Activists of the Center for Girls in Niš held a street action on the occasion of the femicide that happened in Vršac, when a father killed his 3 years old daughter, drowning her in a bucket of water, after the Center for Social Work allowed him to see the child, even though the girl's mother reported domestic violence several times in the past.
Over two thousand people saw the street action of the Center for Girls, held on the occasion of the European Day against Human Trafficking.
