It’s week five of our Lotus Flower Programme! Our participants are gearing up for new kinds of challenges and opportunities. And we’re helping them to find out how to integrate into their new environment. What’s more, how can they stay true to who they are?
We’re excited to announce our cooperation with HiiL! We matched them with two of our Lotus Flower participants, Nour Nowilati and Alaa Alturki, who will be providing translations support on one of their Justice Innovation programmes.
We launched our Lotus Flower Programme into the world!
Months in the making – and thanks to the generous support of Canon Nederland and WIJDOENMEE.NU we’ve made it here. We are grateful for your believing in us and in this project. It’s an honour to share our journey to economic empowerment of refugee and migrant women with you! We appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile for and with us and our participants.
Now let’s give a warm welcome to our participants. Your future awaits! Live for the story.
Madeleine Albright, the first woman to become the United States Secretary of State. Marlene Dietrich, the ‘silver screen icon from classical movies. Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. What links them?
These three women were forced to flee their countries in pursuit of safety or better living conditions. The three of them found a host country where they could continue their professional careers. What’s more, nowhere else but in the host countries, they grew into icons of femininity and human rights. They grew so that they could change our world. They were empowered so that they could empower and inspire us today.
