On Thursday 8 September, we joined the Gouden Zandlopers dinner to wait anxiously to see whether our Legal Aid Centre would win. As the title of this article suggests, we were surprised with this good news around 22:00. A nice credit for all the hard work over the past year.
Culture- and gender-sensitive approach
This edition of the Golden Hourglasses focused on various social initiatives. According to our staff members Rajae Azaroual (Lawyer) and Susan Leclercq (Project Manager), the win is therefore ‘the much-needed recognition of the problem’. By speaking to women in an approachable way – in as many as nine different languages – we receive dozens of women a month at our location in the Kolenkit neighbourhood for a variety of legal issues. And we will definitely continue this!
