ISPA project will seek to ensure the improvement of the protection and prevention system against domestic and gender-based violence
On September 30, the project PEER NETWORK: Gender Violence and Empowerment was launched, which aims to promote civic empowerment and engagement of women who are or have been targeted by gender-based violence, domestic violence, discrimination and harassment through the constitution of Peer Support Groups. These Peer Support Groups will be created based on the women’s personal experience and in this particular case, the project will focus on women from the so-called vulnerable groups: migrants and from rural areas.
The project is developed by the Higher Institute of Applied Psychology (ISPA) for a duration of 24 months, and has a partnership with ACVS - Associação Caboverdiana de Setúbal, Casa do Brasil de Lisboa, TAIPA Odemira - Organization for Integrated Development, and Women of Multicultural Ethnicity Network (W.O.M.E.N. in Iceland).
The PEER NETWORK: Gender Violence and Empowermentis project is an Open Call #4 project: Projects to improve protection of victims of violence against women and domestic violence, within the scope of the Work-life Balance Programme operated by CIG and funded by the EEA Grants.
