FIM e.V. is an intercultural counselling center for immigrant women and their families in Frankfurt am Main. We offer counselling and support to women who are in distress -free of charge, confidential and in more than ten languages.
FIM stands for “Frauenrecht ist Menschenrecht” (Women’s Rights are Human Rights). Women and girls are often victims of severe human rights violations such as forced marriages, female genital mutilation/circumcision, human trafficking and domestic violence. FIM supports the victims, makes them aware of and fight for their rights.
FIM is committed to education/learning, empowerment and promotion of integration of immigrants from all over the world.
... is a common social problem. A recent study by the European Union shows, that every third woman in the European Union has experienced physical or sexual violence. With 35 % Germany is even above the average percentage of the 28 EU member states. There remains a lot to do in campaigning public awareness, preventing violence and establishing a help system for the concerned women.
FIM counsels and supports about 1000 migrants a year. In addition to German the consultants of FIM speak nine other languages. Thus, they can support women in crisis in their mother tongue (native language) and offer them a culture-specifical consultation.
Conflicts and war in the Middle East and Africa, terror and political prosecution, poverty and the lack of living prospects lead to the flight of a growing number of human beings. In Europe the number of refugees has also increased.
Since the foundation of FIM in 1980 our focus has been on the work against human trafficking. From 1999 onwards, FIM has been the central coordination centre of Hessian work against human trafficking.
