On September 25, 26 and 27, experts from Center for Sustainable Communities Development, PULSE Foundation, Pernik and the Center Dynamics Association, Ruse, participated in a WEGO!2 partnership meeting in Padua, Italy.
They exchanged useful practices and know-how on building partnerships with their counterparts from Greece, Spain and Italy. Each organization shared its approach to building women's networks and the methodology for building social relationships with victims of domestic violence. Particular attention was paid to the work with women refugees or migrant women and their economic empowerment.
During the meetings they also discussed the challenges faced by each of the organizations and negotiation strategies with institutions, local authorities, local business structures, NGOs and other organizations. All countries expressed their willingness to work on the other points of the project, including training of specialists in the field and creating networks of independent and empowered women.
