“Knowledge is power, know your rights.”

Stg. Building Bridges…Saving Lives recognized the urgent need to address the legal vulnerabilities faced by migrant women, particularly in the context of gender-based violence (GBV) and access to legal rights. To this end, we  initiated a comprehensive project focused on enhancing the legal capacity of migrant women. This initiative integrated legal literacy training and GBV outreach sessions, aiming to empower women with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate legal systems effectively.

Despite the importance of this endeavor, financial limitations constrained our ability to provide comprehensive support. In response, we proposed the “Knowledge is Power, Know Your Rights!” project as a strategic intervention to overcome these barriers. This new project placed a strong emphasis on empowering migrant women through targeted information dissemination in their respective languages.

The “Knowledge is Power, Know Your Rights!” project employed a multifaceted approach to achieve its objectives. Online campaigns, face-to-face sessions, and the creation of a resource repository webpage were key components of this initiative. These activities were designed to reach migrant women across diverse communities, ensuring accessibility and relevance.

Central to the project’s objectives was the goal of increasing awareness of human rights and GBV among migrant women. To achieve this, the project offered educational sessions conducted by legal experts, providing practical insights into navigating legal systems and accessing support services. Additionally, the project produced a policy brief to advocate for legal reforms and developed multimedia materials, including e-posters, videos, and podcasts, to engage and inform the target audience.
