The strength of the powerless – mutual support system within the circle of women.

Project Promoter: Fundacja Edukacyjno-Rozwojowa Zielone Pojęcie
Proposal: 1st thematic call
Co-financed from the program: 101 641,91 EUR
Partners: Miasto Cieszyn
Duration time: 01.11.2021-31.10.2023

The aim of the project is to raise the awareness of domestic violence prevention among residents of the Cieszyn Municipality and its surroundings. The project is implemented in partnership with the local government unit – the City of Cieszyn. We want to provide complex support for women in a difficult crisis situation. We will publish a free quarterly ‘A Bag, Like a Woman’s’ containing articles on domestic violence and personal development. We will set up a support group called Circle of Women, organize cyclical workshops, meetings, lectures and conduct individual consultations. When creating the plan of this project, we were wondering how to reach out to the widest possible group of women and respond to their various problems and needs. We know that a long-lasting, difficult situation which is hard to cope with and solve on one’s own, very often triggers an impulse for self-development. Such a situation can affect different life-spheres, but it can also have a negative impact on quality of life. However, we want to deal with it in the first place, because it causes the greatest discomfort. Solving a crisis situation often becomes an impulse for further changes and personal development, which results in a better life.
