Serving the Community for 10 Years
In the UK: Hear women/Gargar Foundation was established in Westminster London in 2008 to support women from east and north Africa living in central west London who face multiple disadvantages many being economically challenged marginalized and suffering from abuse and poverty. Most of our service users are from migrant and refugee communities and many face long-term unemployment and experience difficulties accessing mainstream health services. The aim has been to empower women especially those from marginalize backgrounds to develop and progress.
Internationally: Since 2011 Hear Women has been active in Somalia, assisting with humanitarian efforts as well as providing training to women in the government, to advance their participation in the political process. More recently The Gambia has joined the Hear Women family, to learn from its efforts to address issues of FGM, health, and well-being, as well as inclusion of women as full participants in their society.
We have been recognized through various means including: Outstanding Organization of the year (2017), shortlisting for the Queen’s award, and chosen to host the peace and development conference in Somalia.
