In the opening ceremony of the first Center for Treatment and Rehabilitation of Mother and Child, the vice-president for women and family affairs announced that the government and the NGOs would soon be working on a joint project which provides better facilities to empower women and families against social harms.
According to the Public relations Office of the Rebirth Charity society, Masoumeh Ebtekar, the vice-president for women and family affairs said, “In order to properly encounter with the widespread harms against children and women, we must have a scientific approach and work with people and NGOs.”
Emphasizing necessary supports that help charities and NGOs, she asserted, “These organizations can present effective solutions for harm reduction problems. The effectiveness of NGOs is not less than that of the government. They might be even more influential and successful due to their high motivations. Moreover, NGOs work at a lower cost.”
We need to empower NGOs.
Ebtekar emphasized the necessity to empower NGOs against social harms. She added, “We can empower these NGOs more by studying and investigating. We should give them permission for more activities. The vice-presidency for women and family affairs is supporting these organizations and centers. They were also supported in the past for some projects.”
She continued, “We will soon be working on a joint project with NGOs in the field of women and families. This project will provide a better opportunity to help remove the harms.”
Ebtekar, referred to a project which is being pursued in the vice-presidency for women and family affairs. She stated, “This project is able to empower women facing social harms. Most injured women, who are hopeless and are at the end of their rope, as they themselves say, can benefit from such projects to change their lives.”
