Support to the most vulnerable in our society
With the support of the organization Schüler Helfen Leben, NGO Atina launched a series of
activities in the field to psychologically and economically empower young women and girls
who are at risk of various forms of exploitation. For now, we launched a cooperation with
Center for Protection of Infants, Children and Youth in the Maternal home at Zvečanska Street
and Home “Mose Pijade”, but also intensively work with girls and young women from the
Roma settlement Reva.
Every week, NGO Atina’s professional workers hold workshops at the Maternal home to help
prepare these young women and girls so that when they leave the home they are ready for a
life that carries many obstacles and risks. One part of the work relates to their psychological
empowerment by raising their self-esteem and working on themselves, while the other part
relates to the economic empowerment through creating jewellery from clay and other finest
materials. Girls and young women from the Roma settlement Reva are also included in these
workshops, and we will soon include young people from the Institute for Education of
Children and Adolescents “Vasa Stajić”.
In order to become independent and strong, they need constant support they now have with the
help of the program which will last for two years, and which several times during the week
organizes workshops not only for the purpose of psychological and economic empowerment,
but also to provide support they have not had until now.
