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.
Activists of the Center for Girls marked the International Day of Action for Women's Health and Reproductive Rights by distributing informative leaflets on the prevention of cervical cancer, in Obrenovićeva Street and in front of the Delta shopping center.
The representatives of the Center for Girls met with the representatives of three city municipalities - Pantelej, Crveni Krst and Medijana. On that occasion, they presented Empowering self-defense workshops and presented the results of research on the safety of girls and women in public places in Niš, as well as recommendations for measures to increase security, formed on the basis of the research.
Over 2,500 people saw the performance "Women's Graveyard" which, on the occasion of yesterday's Remembrance Day for Women Victims of Violence, was performed by 17 Center for Girls' activists in Obrenovićeva Street, in the center of Niš. The participants wore the names of girls/women killed since the beginning of this year, and the names of over 400 girls/women killed from 2010 to today were heard from the speakers.
