About Stichting Avrasya

The Avrasya Foundation promotes the emancipation, integration and participation of non-Western, especially Dutch-Oriental, women in Dutch society. It is characteristic that in the organized activities an exchange takes place between immigrant and native women. Mutual understanding of the social backgrounds and cultural values of the participating women – call it solidarity – is central. The activities are aimed at getting to know Dutch cultural values and promoting social functioning in the Netherlands with an understanding of the socio-cultural values and customs of the regions of origin. All this is done in a specific, recognizable and accessible way.

Understanding each other with respect for each other's beliefs forms the basis of home, of feeling safe. The good contacts that the Avrasya Foundation maintains with the mother country Turkey and the neighboring countries in the Caucasus, as well as the exchange of various (international) projects, promote a sense of belonging, which makes the women more inclined to participate in the activities in The Hague.

The Avrasya Foundation works on this basis to remove feelings of insecurity and uncertainty and to stimulate women and girls to use their own opportunities through its activities.

Since 1999, the Avrasya Foundation has been working in a taboo-breaking manner with passion and perseverance. Countless projects, meetings and lectures are carried out: a mixture of information provision, training, meeting and cultural exchange. An extensive team of volunteers is active in The Hague and beyond and women are reached in all kinds of ways and enthused to follow educational and cultural courses or attend meetings. They are, if desired, expertly advised and guided in social problems. Self-development is the keyword here.
