SOMM supports social participation  of migrant and muslim women and the access to educational and working opportunities.

We, migrant and/or muslim women, have organized ourselves in order to support equality, participation and integration and to be able to offer concrete help in social matters.

We oppose violence against women, racism and islamophobia.

With our work we want to call the attention of the society to the formal and informal qualifications and competences of migrant women.

As migrant and/or muslim women we want to encourage each other. We take the opportunity for free development of identity as an important way to integration and participation.
