Women’s Empowerment & Safety

MiCare is inspired by women from refugee and migrant backgrounds who address safety & social isolation

MiCare has been inspired by women from refugee and migrant backgrounds who address safety and social isolation and bring positive change to other women in similar circumstances.  We are committed to gender equity, women’s and children’s safety, and the long-term sustainability of community-led initiatives.

Through tailored leadership initiatives, MiCare brings together women from diverse backgrounds with shared values to support, learn and encourage each other. We work alongside women to build their confidence, knowledge, and leadership skills within their communities.

  • Women’s Network in the West
  • Capacity Building for women’s groups, including mentoring and skill development
  • Women’s support groups
  • Facilitating linkages between community members and services
  • Creating opportunities for women through education, leadership, and skills training

Supporting women to have greater economic, social, and political participation in society

Through an intersectional and intercultural approach, MiCare, together with migrant and refugee communities, works towards addressing gender diversity.

I would like to thank you and MiCare for giving me this opportunity to have a laptop to study the IT program as I will start the course soon. The course will be two days in the class face to face and two days online so it helps me saving time to study at home instead of going to the library.
