Counselling Centre

Specialised Counselling Centre against Forced Marriage and Honour Related Violence

In a lot of honour cultures, girls and women are seen as bearers of the family honour. The families decide over their future and deny them a self-determined and free life. This honour related violence is committed by various family members individually or together and is therefore especially dangerous.

Honour related violence starts with rules, restrictions and threats to control women, which can then escalate to acts of emotional and physical violence. In extreme cases women become victims of forced marriages and honour killings.

The specialised counselling centre LANA supports women, who

  • are at risk or affected of a forced marriage
  • are afraid to be forcibly married abroad
  • are forbidden from going out
  • are being isolated by their families
  • have worries about their virginity
  • want to break out and live a self-determined life

We counsel in person, via telephone and online:

  • girls and women
  • friends
  • supporting relatives
  • anyone that wants to help
  • professionals
  • communities
