Amal Women's Association is a Muslim Women led service responding to the needs of women across Ireland.
Amal in Arabic means hope or aspiration.
We in Amal provide positive interventions in the lives of women to support women, empower women and give strength and voice to the community.
We all have witnessed rise in hate crimes and racist attacks. The lack of immediate assistance and guidance in most cases is unavailable. With absence of quick intervention from authorities and public fear of getting involved in such matters, most victims are left isolated, confused and bear an emotional scar for long.
Amal Women’s Association has thus felt a strong need to launch the “Safer Community Initiative”. also known as the Yellow Sticker. Read more
Our Yellow Sticker initiative will start primarily covering areas around Dublin 8, yellow stickers on public premises will let someone know they can go their for help and support if an incident happens on the street. This isn't a space for just Muslim women, its for anyone who suffers harassment, intimidation or worse on the street. We hope it will be a chance to collaborate and work with various local groups in our local area.
