What is the specific societal challenge faced by this region?

The southern part of the county is an area where domestic violence is a problem quite often, still, encountered, especially in disadvantaged socio-economic communities. Acceptance of this issue by women in disadvantaged communities is still considered normal. This is the cruel reality of rural communities.

Focus groups that will seek to identify the causes of the problems specific to each category of beneficiaries involved in the project. A study will be carried out that will reveal the type of preponderant violence (so far), no. cases of violence and how many people are affected in the commune and also particularities specific to the commune. There will be organized 5 events / seminars / trainings in which 30 beneficiaries and representatives of the local community will participate. 9 public consultation sessions will be initiated.

How does your idea strengthen active citizenship at a local and community level?

The need addressed by the project is to make the people of the target group (TG) aware that domestic violence is a harmful, physical or emotional act that takes place between members of a family. violence is used, when violence occurs, who uses violence, what are the main characteristics of violence, to whom are the forms of violence directed and finally what to do in case of abuse. The project provides useful information GT to use in the interest for the prevention of violence. Organizing round tables, individual meetings, focus groups in which each topic proposed in the project will be debated, seminars with specialists (psychologists, doctors, social workers, community policeman, etc.), case studies, role-playing games.
