To offer a holistic protection and empowerment model for women who are at risk and survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) in a women-only safe space – the first of its kind in Greece.
Refugee and asylum-seeking women are empowered with skills, knowledge and networks to become independent agents of change, and have access to, and control over, income and resources
GBV survivors and women at risk have access to holistic GBV response services to heal from trauma and be safe from further harm
Increase sense of community and foster trust between the Greek community and refugee and asylum-seeking women, and promote and support women-led models of reintegration
Hear their voices in the video below and join us on a journey marked by struggle, sacrifice and hope.
Together, we can help break the cycle of oppression.
The Pomegranate Project was born from the concept of seeding women’s individual and collective power and potential.
The Pomegranate Project is the first holistic programme in Greece, run with and for refugee women at risk, or survivors, of gender based violence. We offer a holistic protection and empowerment model to enable recovery and healing, and meaningful integration into Greek society.
