Adana Women's Shelter and Support Center (AKDAM)– Adana Kadın Dayanışma Merkezi ve Sığınma Evi Derneği

TN-TR/20

DESCRIPTION OF THE STEP TRAINEESHIP PROVIDER

AKDAM was founded in 1998 by a handful of women to struggle against violence against women and raise awareness.

AKDAM aims to make the patriarchic male violence seen, cooperate with the civil society in this regard, and offer information on these subjects whenever necessary.

AKDAM continues its efforts on a local, regional, and national level, and aims to reach more women with its project.

The Centre offers legal, psychological and social consultancy services with the principle of respecting the woman's account of the events. AKDAM provides these services by volunteers.

Another principle of AKDAM is to carry local issues into national platforms, to share them, and to come up with solutions while at the same time not straying from a female perspective and feminist principles. AKDAM makes efforts to create female policies in every aspect of life, to prevent discrimination against women and to question such discrimination when it arises, and this is made possible through donations and membership fees.
