Girls Helped

NONA Sanitary Napkin Project

Dat een groot aantal meisjes en vrouwen onder zeer zware omstandigheden leeft, is algemeen bekend. Door corona en de gevolgen hiervan is in Sri Lanka de leefsituatie voor velen van hen nu slechter dan ooit.

Het is zo extreem dat veel vrouwen en meisjes niet meer de mogelijkheid hebben om maandverband te kopen. Dit leidt ertoe dat meisjes niet meer naar school gaan en vrouwen stoppen met hun baan. Dit heeft natuurlijk grote gevolgen, niet alleen voor henzelf, maar ook voor die van toekomstige generaties. Het is daarom van groot belang dat meisjes naar school kunnen blijven gaan en dat vrouwen blijven werken. Want als vrouwen ondervertegenwoordigd raken in de nationale beroepsbevolking, heeft dit bijzonder nadelige consequenties voor de positie van de vrouw in de samenleving.

Daarom starten wij het NONA Sanitary Napkin Project; een project waarbij wij meisjes en vrouwen gaan voorzien van maandverband. Zodat zij naar school kunnen blijven gaan of kunnen blijven werken.

Our Work

Create a promosing and meaningful life for girls that were victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking; a life with freedrom, justice and human dignity.

NONA Empowerment Center

The NONA Empowerment Center mainly consists of teachers and experts who teach the girls a profession/trade or train skills. In the NONA Empowerment Center, we provide education and training in Beauty Culture, English classes, Handicraft and Teddy Bear Counseling. This will be expanded in the short term with training courses in finance, management and entrepreneurship. The NONA Empowerment is located in Kuliyapitiya, a town in the North Western Province of Sri Lanka.

NONA Empowerment Aid

The NONA Empowerment Aid offers help to girls who have to leave the shelters of the Child Care and Protection Services when they turn 18. These girls were taken care of as victims of sexual violence, but also because of neglect, physical or mental abuse. It is difficult for this target group to build a life in society. Because they have been rejected by their environment, they cannot always make the start they are entitled to. Nor are they always allowed access to the resources which they need to build a healthy and happy future.

NONA Gardens

NONA Foundation has taken the initiative to realize a unique shelter for girls and young women who are victims of sexual violence and human trafficking in the Kurunegala area, a city in North West Sri Lanka.Many of these girls are housed in a government shelter for a certain period of time. However, when they turn 18, they have to leave the house to make room for new underaged girls. That in itself is poignant, but much worse is that the young women end up on the street again.
