Stop domestic violence

Stop domestic violence

 

A study in 2000 revealed that one in four women becomes the victim of domestic violence in Bulgaria. Furthermore, given the economic and financial crisis, this number is rising. Along with the existing prevention forms, the need for new approaches was felt.

This project, which was set up by the collaborative effort of the Bulgarian Regional Police Directorate and the NGO NAIA in Targovishte, aims to:

  • facilitate the access of professionals working in this area (psychologists, social workers, teachers, medical doctors, etc.) to literature by creating a databank on all aspects of domestic violence
  • increase the involvement of citizens in the prevention of domestic violence
  • increase the number of victims sharing their experiences and seeking help

In order to achieve these goals, a thematic website was developed, containing a forum, a chat room and virtual sharing
