    We organize information and training sessions for specialists with responsibilities in combating domestic violence: police officers, psychologists, lawyers, social workers, etc. This sessions integrate the principles of gender equality in defining the phenomenon of violence against women. The training sessions are interactive, starting from the experience of the survivors from the #ȘiEuReușesc network. In companies, we carry out activities for the integration of the principles of gender equality in the workplace, the recognition of forms of violence, but also of reporting mechanisms among employees, both in professional and public life.

We seek to find new ways to communicate, to contribute and to be together, to share power and resources and to live a balanced life. We involve both men and women, regardless of age, race or social status, in our activities.

At the same time, we encourage people to live without abuse and violence. We provide the necessary support for women to find their inner strength to overcome violence. We promote gender equality and by that we mean balanced power relations between women and men, in the family and in society.
