Women’s Peace Group Pancevo
WPG’s work has a strong focus on women’s rights and participation of girls and women in the society. But their approach of equal rights and solidarity is wider; they work with and for other disadvantaged groups in their community, especially with young people with disabilities.
On the local level they organise Action days for girls's and women’s rights, school and other workshops to discuss about the role of women and expectations towards women in order to empower young women to decide about their own life.
One important field of their work is media literacy with gender dimension. In a spirit of European solidarity, WPG is always interested in cooperation with other local initiatives. In the last years the work against nationalism and xenophobia has become more and more important.
WPG believes that girls and women play an essential role for the positive societal development. In the same time they are discriminated and their commitment is often underestimated. The empowerment for own rights includes the idea of equal rights for all.
Therefore WPG works with other groups active in the field of solidarity, peace-building and inclusion. Additionally to a coordinator, they work with professional volunteers, who have been studing youth work or psychology.
