Women’s Support and Information Centre
Women’s Support and Information Centre (WSIC) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2002 as a first shelter in Estonia that focused on supporting women suffering from violence.
WSIC focuses on creating conditions for stopping the mechanisms of domestic violence, to enable rehabilitation and resocialization of survivors and reduce the risk of repeated violence by offering comprehensive assistance to victims.
WSIC unites people who are committed to making the world a better place – we work every day to help those in need and grow the community not to tolerate violence and to come to the rescue if necessary. Our goal is to achieve (basic) human rights to all community members: to live free from fear and to be able to decide for oneself, to offer children a happy childhood and a content life.
