VOAW applies an intersectional approach. We examine which forms of oppression, exclusion and marginalisation can take place as a result of certain power structures and include several aspects in our examination.
Partnership and collaboration
Partnership and collaboration are key to our work. VOAW partners with other organisations and institutions that are active in the area of our work.
We pay attention to cultural sensitivity
Our organisation uses the lived experiences and knowledge of specific customs and traditions in our approach.
Lived experience as expertise
Our trainers and volunteers have faced the same problems, issues, and barriers as our target group. Consequently, they are able to use their experience to connect to our project participants and to use this as a basis to assist them.
