Women’s empowerement group – Day of creativity

Day of creativity

On Wednesday, 6th of February, the women’s empowerment group gathered at the Center of Social Integration and Employability of Caritas Hellas in Kipseli, in order to complete their project on producing a garden made by needles and colors. It was an amazing procedure because two women who were very professional on needling, showed the rest of the group how to make flowers. The women created lots of them and by decorating a piece of colorful paper they managed to make a garden.

The meaning of the garden, according to the social worker who organizes the women’s group, is simple but valuable: after any difficulty in life, we grow up in mind, in our souls and emotionally, just like the flowers: either on their own, or by humans’ activities, a seed grows to later become a beautiful flower.

The women’s empowerment and support group is part of the Program “Social and Economic Integration of Refugees and Immigrants in Athens” concerning the support and integration of refugees and immigrants in Greek society. The Program is implemented by Caritas Hellas and is funded by Caritas Switzerland.
