Where is it?
Thessaloniki and Thessaly, Greece
About the project
As a result of seeing serious emerging needs, and gaps in provision, charity InterVolve opened Ìrida, a Multicultural Women’s Centre that can support women in Thessaloniki (and their families) for years to come. This is the only women’s centre in Northern Greece, on in a camp setting in two locations. Ìrida is a Greek word meaning spectrum or every shade of colour that makes up light.
InterVolve envision Ìrida to be a safe, welcoming, participatory space, where women feel a sense of belonging and respect. At Ìrida individuals and communities can access the information, support, social connections, space and resources they need to make choices, to meet their needs, to bond, to develop and to survive and thrive.
