Help empower women and aid their access to justice!
Our legal aid helpline is the only one in Hungary providing legal advice specifically to victims of violence against women. Callers are supported by our expert legal team, and receive information and counsel on the basis of decades of experience in cases of violence against women. This service is unique: our team is deeply familiar with the many hurdles victims have to go through to receive justice and freedom from abusers in the Hungarian legal system, and hence can inform victims of what to watch out for, and which legal strategies are most promising in this, discriminative legal environment.
Help us maintain this service - and hopefully, expand it, so that we can take more calls!
Together with our partner organisation, NANE Association, we provide complex care to victims of violence against women since 2006. Victims need a combination of legal, psychological and social support in order to successfully escape and heal from abusive relationships. Integrated client service means the long-term cooperation of a lawyer and a mental health professional to support a victim. The support is tailored to the particular victim’s needs and is adjusted to fit the developments of her case.
Help us maintain this service, help us support more women!
In Hungary, the curriculum for legal professionals does not include preparing lawyers to adequately support and represent victims of violence against women. Hence, upon encountering such cases, many turn to us for strategic advice on how to approach them. Our organisation and network of trained lawyers has no capacity to represent every victim, so we are happy to give professional advice to lawyers trying to represent their client in the best way and willing to learn from us. Consultation can be requested by victims and their lawyers as a paid service, but often this is not an option, as clients might barely be able to pay even the basic fees of their representation.
Sponsor our consulting activity, so that we can also assist in these cases, and help women get better legal strategies and representation!
A thorough and expert reading of legal documents, court records and testimonies can often reveal several mistakes, misinterpretations or missed details that are crucial to the outcomes of a case. For instance, noticing and building on such details may save children from being placed with an abusive father, or can reinforce the victim’s position when accused of dishonesty. Victims and their lawyers can request that we review case documents as a paid service, but often this is not an option, as clients might barely be able to pay even the basic fees of their representation.

Sponsor the services below to help us prevent sexual violence and harassment!
The services below may be requested as a paid service to schools and other institutions, but many have no resources for this.
Our human rights-based sexual education classes are centered on raising awareness of consent, mutuality, and equality in sex. During our programs in schools, we recognised that in the absence of proper sexual education, children and youth learn about sex from the internet and popular culture, resulting in an image and practice of sexuality that is often harmful, especially to girls. On our classes, we talk with students openly and without taboos – about sex, about the differences between sex and violence, and about which things are “alright” and what’s “not alright”, and why.
With your support, we can get to more schools and speak to more kids, giving us the opportunity to raise important questions also in underserved areas and institutions, with the aim of preventing sexual violence, abuse and sexual bullying.
Throughout their day-to-day work, teachers, school nurses, and other education and childcare professionals are regularly faced with the effects of the hypersexualised cultural environment children and young people are currently exposed to. However, they rarely have the tools and knowledge to frame, address and discuss the issues and violence that emerges from this environment. Our training provides useful background knowledge, educational tools, lesson plans and methods to facilitate discussion with students about sex. It helps education professionals navigate these complex subjects and identify what subjects to address and how to address them in order to reduce the risk of sexual violence and bullying, combat harmful myths, and support students in developing a healthy, mutuality-based sexuality.
Schools and other institutions can request this training for their staff, but we also need your support so that we can train more activists to visit schools with this program. The more trained activists we have, the more schools and kids we can reach, so that hopefully, we reduce the risk of violence and help girls in as many places as possible.
A growing number of schools, institutions and workplaces are coming to recognise that sexual harassment and abuse are grave issues affecting the lives of many, and therefore want to learn more about these phenomena, and about potential responses and methods of prevention. Our workshop gives an overview of these, tailoring the material to the given group’s organisational structure, needs, questions and concerns. Our experts are happy to deliver workshops in parent and/or teacher communities, social institutions, civil society organisations, youth groups, camps and companies alike.
Groups, organisations and companies can request this workshop as a paid service, but there are also places that need it and have no financial means to invite workshops. With your support, we can also reach these communities.
A growing number of schools, institutions and workplaces are coming to recognise that sexual harassment and abuse are grave issues affecting the lives of many, and that preventive and safeguarding policies and measures are needed not only in the wider society and the state, but also internally, within specific groups, communities, institutions and workplaces. This requires developing an internal protocol based on good practice, expert advice, and the particular organisation’s characteristics, as well as organisation-wide trainings. Our experts help you launch the process and facilitate it, so that the given organisation, group, workplace or institution comes out at the other end with a tailored and ready-to-implement prevention and response protocol.
Groups, organisations and companies can request this workshop as a paid service, but there are also places that need it and have no financial means to cover such a process. With your support, we can also help these communities develop their prevention and safeguard policies, so that women and girls can be safe and active in their organisation.
