Tema: Folkligt deltagande
Olof Palmes Internationella Center
The project is implemented in South Africa. The target groups are urban women, the elderly and children in townships exposed to gender based violence. Through counselling services and psychological assistance the project aims to help women to break the abusive cycle by moving from being dependent to being self-directed and economical independent. Through awareness campaigns against gender based violence and trainings and workshops for women about their rights and how to claim it the project aims to empower women in general and to raise awareness on violence against women and children.
