Raising Up: Building Better Communities
Workshop 3, titled "Raising Up: Building Better Communities," took place on April 23, 2023, at the Best Western Plus Krakow Old Town, Poland.
The primary focus of this occasion was to tackle the obstacles confronted by migrant women and to investigate methods for establishing inclusive networks and communities that contribute to their empowerment, overall wellness, and advancement.

Be Yourself: Mental Women Wellbeing (Vienna, Austria)
During the workshop, our primary focus was on stress and emotional balance, with a keen understanding of the potential reasons that might lead migrant women to experience feelings of being lost and depressed in a new country. This is particularly relevant in societies where open-mindedness is still a work in progress.
"Are you feeling lost or stressed in a new country? Are you struggling to discover equilibrium and inner inspiration?" These were the issues we aimed to address.
Our team of expert coaches provided a range of strategies to tackle the challenges mentioned above and to find that much-needed inner inspiration. Participants were encouraged to engage with these strategies, facilitating the journey of learning and personal growth within a supportive community. This step marked the commencement of a mindful approach to self-healing and the creation of a harmonious balance.
The workshop was designed holistically, incorporating elements of movement to promote both physical and mental well-being. Attendees were recommended to wear comfortable clothing in order to fully immerse themselves in these activities.
