Meetings = Opportunities to Share Solutions

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

There are two Deputies representing the Roma community (Gypsies) in the Turkish Parliament. Recently, they asked us to visit the Parliament to support them when discussing the problems of the Roma people with different government ministries. We were happy to do so.

Women Helped In Many Ways

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

This winter, the weather conditions were harsh. Many were ill in our neighbourhood and our Transformational Community Development (TCD) team. Thankfully, everyone is healthy now. We are also in the winter break time for the schools and sharing lots of good times with the children.

Christmas stocking knitting has kept the Women's Empowerment Centre ladies very busy! Women knit the most stockings this season, and it is their best opportunity to earn income. Therefore, there is more joy in their homes.

Refugees Will Receive Needed Help

Smyrna, Turkey

 

It has been a busy networking time for us. Our organisation is growing and becoming known by more and more people. First, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality reached out to us by conducting an interview about the work we do among disadvantaged women. They think we're doing a great job of giving more women hope! This publicity will be very helpful to reach new people to get to know us and potentially support us.

An Opportunity in Workclothes

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

A crisis is always an opportunity. Last month, an issue that arose among the women was a great teachable moment for us. As we were solving problems, we saw that our relationships have gotten stronger.

Knitted Christmas Stockings Project Brings Hope

Smyrna, Turkey

 

We started a knitted Christmas stockings project within the scope of the Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre’s efforts. We carried out the project in less-fortunate neighbourhoods. We thought that making money is an important factor for women's self-confidence, and we aimed to help disadvantaged women to make some money. At the same time, we helped them to solve some of the problems related to their children. Women were able to earn money without having to look for a job during this compelling pandemic season.
