Hi all,

We are running a small NGO based in the USA, but operating in Bahrain. It is essentially the first traditional rape crisis center in all of the Middle East! 

We had an amazing first round of fundraising, where we raised more than $1500!! We only need $1000 more to cover an important batch of start up expenses. 

Please check out our website. www.womenscci.org

Violence against women in the Middle East is the same as it is anywhere else in the world. BUT - the difference is that here there are virtually NO services for survivors. Our programming is crucial here. 

What we do:

1. Provide FREE training programs to hospitals and clinics on how to recognize signs of sexual and domestic violence. And how to offer effective help without further traumatizing the victims. 

2. Provide FREE training programs to community groups, schools, religious groups and corporations on how to recognize signs of abuse and how to make safe and effective referrals for help. 

3. Provide FREE training for girls in school and University on how to keep themselves safe from violence and how to recognize signs of perpetrators. 

4. Provide in-house hospital program development for the the implementation of permanent rape and violence crisis response programming. 

5. We are preparing to provide (with proper funding) locally based trauma counseling for survivors of domestic and sexual violence at a locally based counseling center.

6. We are developing an AMAZING mobile phone application that is a tool for women and girls to use in thier daily struggle against oppression in the Arab world. Details to follow.... trademarking in process!!! 

What we still need:

1. $500 for the mobile phone application development

2. $300 for office supplies to prepare the school and hospital training materials

3. $200 for printing of our program brochures so we can get the word out about our services

Your support means the world to me and is a vital step in providing rape crisis center services for the first time ever (!) to women in the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf. 

Much love and appreciation!
