about us
Women Empowering centre "Awakening" is a part of Stichting "Volunteers with no Limits".

Established in February 2022, "Volunteers with no Limits" (VW-NL), KVK 86209264, rose in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. At the onset of the war we immediately gathered dire necessities in the Netherlands for Ukraine and later for Ukrainian refugees in the Netherlands.

Since February we helped more than 1500 Ukrainian families that fled to The Netherlands.
In response to the most common needs, we launched 4 projects
Our projects
That's why we launched the Women empowering centre «Awakening».

Intense experience of volunteering and communication with refugee women helped us to understand how their needs have changed and how we can help them in a more efficient way.

We believe that the best support is to help people find their inner strength and to inspire them with confidence in their new beginnings. In this difficult time we see big potential in helping people to grow in mental, spiritual, cultural and creative ways.
We believe that Ukrainian women have incredible strength and talents, but they need help to realise
their potential and value.
WEC program offers a range of workshops, meetings, practices that empower women through main pillars – mental support, cultural education, spiritual practice and creative development. Please see the main 8 directions of our centre.

MBSR, Mindfulness, 8-week program with Sasha Yildiz:
Sasha gives hope in the good future by her calmness and communication.
For me, these sessions are very meaningful, our classes are always full of conversations, sharing of feelings, where she skilfully and unobtrusively weaves in theory.
In addition to practices, there is a Telegram group where Sasha shares materials, and there are many of them, they are interesting. This is a very deep course, where we can have serious changes if we work on ourselves.

MBSR, Mindfulness, 8-week program with Sasha Yildiz
This course came into my life at a very right moment and I am infinitely grateful to the organisers and the teacher.
I feel that I am moving in the right direction and am in a positive circle of my compatriots. I have high hopes and hopes that mindfulness will help me solve certain issues and become a part of my life. I have already noticed certain changes in myself. With interest and admiration I look forward to the next class.
3-week transformational coaching program "Fears deactivation" with Alisa Chorna
I wanted to once again say a huge thank you to Alice for bringing us to our senses, and for the changes that began to happen to us.
Specific changes that happened to me: I finally figured it out and saw a picture of what I would like to do in the future, participated in a marathon and made my first one-page site. There was a feeling that I had moved from some point on which I was hung up for a while. I found a strengths and the fear to move on was gone

Acupuncture session with Acupuncturists without boarders
Thank you so much. It was really fantastic. It's my first practice of acupuncture, and I never felt such relaxation in my life; though I practice meditation and yoga and read a lot about creating the great things around us, which lie in the small, I felt a new deep relaxation
