About Ella

 

In 1999 the Centre was immigrant girls and women started as a project within the then ICCM (Intercultural Center for Migrants) and became a non-profit association in 2000. The action research in 1999 that migrant women's associations in Flanders and Brussels mapped, showed after all, the need for specific support on girls and women from ethnic minority groups, given their participation is often limited and they are not covered often full in both structures of the minorities and within the women's movement. Since then, the organization has evolved in its mission and is the direct support function with respect to individuals (girls / women or professionals) and organizations not our core business. But ella develops and implements knowledge from it, and with the target group, for intermediates and works to raise awareness in the wider society.
