1. Empowerment on the individual level:

    • We provide psychological, legal, medical, and economic services to women and girls in regions affected by crisis and war (including psychosocial counseling).

2. Support of civic organizations:

    • We support and guide the development of stable, independent, and well-connected women’s organizations with the goal of fostering women’s civic engagement.
    • We provide trainings, knowledge, and know-how on the stabilization of these structures and networks./li>

3. Transformation at the structural level:

    • We advocate for transformation towards gender equality by supporting peacebuilding and gender equality policies at the societal and political level.
    • We offer social education and prevention work about violence against women and wartime sexual violence, as well as their causes, consequences, and potential countermeasures.

AMICA was founded in Freiburg in 1993, during the war in former Yugoslavia. Originally founded as a humanitarian aid organization, AMICA today is an internationally active non-governmental organization.

Sustainable peace is not possible without women’s participation and equality. AMICA and its partners in conflict regions demand: Women must take part in peace processes! Our campaign video “Peace? Not without us!”

Our Vision
For a peaceful, equitable world free of violence against women.
