Fatima empowering migrant women across four countries


FATIMA has been a collaborative project supporting the empowerment and social integration of migrant women across four countries.

Active across four European countries, the FATIMA project has been a collaborative project between five NGOs supporting the empowerment and social integration of migrant women through a personalised and holistic approach.

Launched in 2018, this ground-breaking project has supported the economic, social, cultural and political integration of over 200 migrant women. Each woman receives  one-on-one support through language classes, mentoring, personalised development programmes, civic engagement and cultural activities plan, volunteering and work experience.

In recent years, Europe has seen the world’s largest movement of people since World War II. Many countries have struggled to cope with the challenges of increased migration. Migrant women share many integration challenges with men. Yet, their risk of exclusion is often more pronounced, facing gendered discrimination as well as racial and class discrimination.

Designed for and by migrant women, FATIMA project has been addressing these migration issues and empowering migrant women across Europe.
