After having desperately realized that women refugees in Zambia are facing
severe difficulties such as: lack of enough food, homelessness, other are
situated where water is a problematic for meagre fares to pay rentals.

African and more asylum traditional are considering women as not useful for the society development and many are cut short from their education for one disfavouring reason or other (pregnancy, possessing one or more children) qualifying their place to be in kitchen. They are victimized whilst men remain unpunished for a same mistake.

We have found that many refugee women are forced to risk their life in order to survive by SELLING their SEX (PROSTITUTION) and therefore depend on the opposite sex, this is harmful to their health and of the society as a whole.
Women refugees dont meet themselves together to share their experiences and teach themselves and defend their rights together as the saying tells in French lunion fait la force union is power-.

Despite potentials and qualifications that women refugees possess, the field of work is not open to them as is it open to men of similar qualifications and potentials.

To help this situation, we have decided the creation of the WOMEN REFUGEES COMMUNITY in ZAMBIA (in short, worecz) which is led by women and for women.

This site will present our organization's cause or ideas to the world. As communicating isn't always easy, we'll try to include photos and images that convey our message (remember, a well-chosen picture is a great way to get a point across). We'll also include specific information about our organization and its members, so no one forgets the people behind the pictures.

On this home page, we'll introduce our cause or message. We'll also try to include a picture or two that represents the kind of work we do.
