In the beginning of June, with the assistance of our associate partners Dinamika Center Ruse, we started work on the WEGO!2 project.
Deana Dimova who leads the partner organization with the assistance of the experts from CSCD have conducted a 3-day training course targeted at social workers on working with women victims of violence by the intimate partner.
The participants learned about the results achieved in the first phase of the project, discussed the various types of violence, the behavior of women who had experienced this trauma, some ways to break out of violence, the economic empowerment, institutional commitments, and so on. The WEGO! Handbook also was presented. Diana Georgieva from CSCD presented the upcoming WEGO!2 activities.
The work at regional level continued with meetings with representatives of the municipal structures, the Social Assistance Directorate, representatives of the Social Activities Department of University of Ruse, the NGO sector and representatives of the middle business. During these meetings the participants learned about the upcoming initiatives, their interest in supporting the work at local level also was explored.
