This summer, our Director, Lucila Granada and Alma Gatica, Migrant Women Integration & Participation Project Coordinator, cycled from Berlin to Copenhagen to gather funds for LAWRS and raise awareness of violence against women and girls (VAWG)

“We are a small charity with a big job to do. Every year, we support over 5,000 women who are facing poverty, violence, or severe exploitation in the UK, through specialist services and programmes. All our services are for free of charge, in Spanish and Portuguese. We also run ESOL classes, employability advice, recreational outings and support to better integrate in the UK and break through isolation. Our ultimate goal is for women to be able to exercise their rights, and live fulfilling lives free from violence and abuse. We believe that this kind of challenges are opportunities to give back to our community, inspire others to show solidarity with migrant women, and make a  positive difference in the lives of some the most vulnerable women,” said Lucila.

After more than 450 km, LAWRS raised over £2,500 from more than 60 online and offline supporters. We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our supporter and everyone sharing the crowdfunding campaign. All donations help fund our specialist services for Latin American migrant women facing violence, exploitation, or poverty.
