Centre MARTA started its activities on May 5, 2000, originating from cooperation of the Swedish Martha Association in Finland and Women Organizations of Latvia.
Centre MARTA is a non-governmental organization that aims to provide support to women in Latvia non-citizens and migrants, women with low income and unemployed women, female victims of human trafficking and of domestic violence.
Resource centre for women MARTA establishes cooperation with other non-governmental organizations and the respective public authorities at national and international level.
MARTA searches for various fundraising opportunities and thus endorses combating of poverty and female exclusion, elimination of violence against women and promotion of women rights, which is a significant part of the human rights.
Pursuant to the present law, Resource centre MARTA was registered with the status of an association on August 18, 2004.
