INSTALLING LIGHTING TO IMPROVE SAFETY FOR WOMEN

At night, refugee camps can sometimes be scary, unsafe places. Especially for women.

In Softex camp in Northern Greece, some residents have a long, dark walk to the toilets. And without adequate lighting, women can be forced to decide between using improvised toilets inside their only safe spaces – the shelters or tents they live in – or risking the walk to the camp’s toilets.

Our implementing partners The Get Sh*t Done Team have now installed floodlighting around the toilets in the camp. It’s a small but important step towards improving the safety and comfort of residents.
