Sin Fronteras, the LAWRS youth group, presents its first Guide to personal well-being for young women, named: “This is who we are. Taking care of ourselves”.

The Guide is launched as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence, a feminist activist campaign, which begins on 25 November with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This Guide is a contribution to the LAWRS campaign that reminds us the importance of taking care of ourselves as a strategy to prevent all forms of violence against women and girls.

The Guide includes informative content on personal well-being issues (such as healthy relationships, abuse and self-esteem), as well as tips, advice, exercises and resources. It also includes the voices of the young Latin American migrant girls who participate in the Sin Fronteras group, which is the result of a collective creation, compiling what they shared in the well-being group sessions, organised by the Sin Fronteras project and facilitated by the LAWRS youth counselor. 

In this way, the girls of the Sin Fronteras group add their voices to the fight for the elimination of violence against women and girls, highlighting the importance of taking care of ourselves.


“Talking about these issues is very important, especially in these stressful times. It’s good to be able to focus on mental health and how we are affected if we don’t take care of ourselves”.

Participant of the Sin Fronteras Group – LAWRS.


In our Sin Fronteras group, we know that well-being is important for our mental health, and physical and emotional growth; and this Guide is an effort to reach out to those girls and young women who need to hear this message of encouragement. 


“It is important to know that you are not alone! You are not the only one who has felt sad”.

Participant of the Sin Fronteras Group – LAWRS.


This Guide was prepared with love for all of them and to remind them that: you are not alone!

Special thanks to all the young women who attended the well-being group sessions. Thank you for sharing your experiences, opinions, feelings, and love, for nurturing the conversation, and for being supportive of each other.
