AT - Orient Express


Name: Orient Express

Country: Austria (AT)
Town: Vienna

Mission: Orient Express is a non-profit, neutral and religiously unaffiliated organisation that combines both a women’s counselling centre, a shelter for young women affected by forced marriage as well as a language learning centre for women.                                                 
We offer our counselling services to women with a migration background, mainly from Turkey and the Arab region. We provide information and support on issues such as: family and partner problems, violence and abuse, forced marriage, FGM and generation conflicts. Complementary to these issues we also give legal advice and counselling on issues related to employment, social benefits, alien law and others.
The language learning center as well as the shelter adress girls and women of all nationalities.

Goals:
  • Addressing social problems and their roots
  • Help in overcoming personal and community related obstacles
  • Taking initiatives in improving the living conditions of women
  • Identifying personal, material and institutional benefits
  • Creating suitable living conditions including psychological and material support, as well as promoting education which will allow women to actively take part in the society
  • Helping women to realize their social rights and take advantage of them
  • Empower women to consciously become aware of responsibility, tolerance and autonomy
  • Protect, support and empower girls and young women who are affected by forced marriage.
