​Support for concrete projects

Women’s day is made up of names and stories. And the Association of Volunteers in International Service Foundation (avsi) wanted to commemorate the women who, in the world’s forsaken suburbs, ignite development and spread hope. The first story is that of Claudine, a courageous woman with six children, a violent husband behind her and great strength of spirit. At avsi’s Mothers, Children, Orphans (meo) Centre in Burundi, which cares for mothers and children, thanks to a process of guidance and support by a psychologist, she has succeeded in healing the deep wounds that the violence she suffered in the family had left within her and thus in making a new start. Today, after a literacy course, she knows how to read and write and has joined a women’s association for the sale of fruit and vegetables. Claudine has become a point of reference for her community and avsi asks for support for her and for other projects for and with women.
