SPRH Women



SPRH WOMEN Team was designed specifically to empower refugee women and children.

Increasing numbers of women and children are seeking asylum in Paris yet unfortunately the vast majority of resources and support mobilized for refugees target males. Thus, SPRH Women was established to work in tandem with other SPRH teams to address this issue.

Our goal is to be a one-stop service window for refugee women and families by putting them first and providing supports tailored to their needs.



Hi! My name is Katherine and I'm one of the coordinators for SPRH Women. I grew up near London before studying History and French at undergraduate level. Now I’m in my first year at PSIA, doing International Security. Having previously volunteered in Calais providing NFI to people-on-the-move, I’m excited to get involved with the project here in Paris!


Hi! My name is Marta and I am originally from Barcelona, where I graduated from a Bachelor’s in Global Studies. Currently, I am currently studying the first year of the Master’s in International Governance & Diplomacy at PSIA. Having previously done a European Solidarity Corps project with a refugee association in Sicily, Italy, I am very excited to be collaborating with the SPRH Women team this year!


Hi everyone! My name is Andrea and I’m one of the coordinators for SPRH Women! I’m originally from Atlanta, Georgia in the United States but pursued my undergraduate degree in International Studies and French at the University of Florida. Currently, I am in the first year of my Master’s at PSIA in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action. I spent the last two summers interning with organizations that provide resettlement services to refugees- first in Naples, Italy with an NGO called L.E.S.S. Cooperativa Sociale and then in Atlanta with the International Rescue Committee. Both of these experiences have made me extremely passionate about refugee rights and I could not be more excited to work with the SPRH Women team this year!


Hi everyone! My name is Lis (she/her) and I am doing my master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action. I got involved in SPRH because I have volunteered with refugees before and really enjoyed it. I think it is a great way to learn about different cultures and make friends.
