What IKWRO does
IKWRO provides support to Middle Eastern and Central Asian women and girls who are at risk of different forms of violence including ‘Honour’ Based Violence, Forced Marriage, Child Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation and Domestic Violence. We have a dedicated and experienced staff of caseworkers who speak several Middle Eastern and Central Asian languages including Arabic, Kurdish, Farsi, Turkish, Dari and Pashtu. We work directly with hundreds of women and girls every year, for whom we provide support, advocacy, counselling and secure protection. We hold a Quality Assurance Award.
IKWRO is one of the most dynamic organisations in the UK supporting Middle Eastern and Central Asian women and girls. We have been helping women to escape violence, campaigning to raise awareness about the different forms of violence and training professionals on these issues for over ten years.
