for the first time in Turkey Kadıköy The “Women's Life House” project, implemented by the Municipality of Women's Shelters and awarded the Best Practice for Women in the Field of Women's Shelters, was implemented with the aim of empowering women and their children and ending the cycle of violence. Women who go to shelters are forced to either leave their children in an environment of violence or put them under state protection, as they cannot take their sons over the age of 12 with them, as per the legislation. Women who have been subjected to violence continue their lives in an environment of violence because they do not want to be separated from their children. Kadıköy In order to find a solution to this problem, the Municipality converted the apartments, whose title deed passed to the Municipality due to urban transformation, into living houses. In the house allocated to the women and their children, whose bill expenses and household goods are covered by the municipality, women can stay until they start a new life without having to leave their children.
The center, which was put into service by a local government for the first time in Turkey; operates in the field of sexual and reproductive health. Within the scope of the project, which received the Best Practice Presented on Reproductive Rights, Parenting and Pregnancy Education award, awareness raising, raising awareness, counseling, guidance services, workshops and training activities are carried out for women and youth.
