In the days when Latvia celebrates its centenary anniversary our friends abroad often ask us what they should wish for, what does Latvia need for its next 100 years? Here in Latvia and MARTA Centre, we ask ourselves- what can we each do for Latvia to make the next century more dignified for people and more successful and united for the society as a whole?

To that question there is only one answer- we need support! In this case – material support from our friends and allies to help us create Latvia in which women and men, girls and boys are equal, and children have their parents, where violence is not widespread and accepted and the best interests of children are taken into account.

It is in our power to join in and support these ideas!

To keep supporting women in Latvia and their children we need financial support, and we kindly ask you to donate to MARTA Centre.

For this message to reach our supporters and allies all over the world please help us to spread this message by sharing it.
