Lobbying: at local, national and international level, AfW aims to improve the political and legal situation of female migrants to help them with issues relating to migration and integration, and to raise awareness about migration and the presence of female migrants within society.

Grassroots activities: support to help women lead an easier private and work life by empowering and supporting them to cope with their everyday lives and shape their life in a proactive and independent manner. Their work is based on the self-help approach: with the women seeking help, AfW develops responses to their problems; provide information on: legal issues such as residence permits and naturalisation; separation, divorce, custody and domestic violence; unemployment, welfare, child benefits, and family and/or maintenance allowance; coordination of self-experience groups for Polish-, Russian- and Thai-speaking women; German courses; educational courses (sewing courses and choir); workshops on relevant and topical issues; provision of a safe space to engage with other women
