Accessing services such as education, health care and welfare represent a huge challenge for migrants and refugees women.

Due to the lack of understanding of the system, increased also by language barriers, women find difficult to use services they are entitled to. These difficulties discourage them and cause further marginalisation.

Despite the wide range of available services providers, there is still a lack of adequacy to the lives situations of migrants and refugee women; therefore the number of those accessing the services is very low.

Service providers’ projects are grounded on standardised models which do not take into consideration the needs of these women who necessitate a tailored support that covers various issues.

EWEG tackles this current situation and plans each projects upon its clients’ individual physical and mental needs. The core objective behind all our projects is the creation of Active Women as main actors of their own agenda of change.
