The Movement for Peace has carried out a programme of comprehensive intervention for women since 2005. This programme is mainly targeted at women victims of gender violence or at risk of social exclusion. They need services that promote equal opportunities and social and labour integration, improve social well-being and quality of life through advice, guidance, accompaniment, socio-cultural promotion, training, social awareness, etc.
The project’s work with women takes a holistic approach, looking not only at the single perspective of a path for the beneficiaries to follow, but also at providing them with the independence necessary to create a new life plan. This is achieved thanks to multidisciplinary intervention by different professionals acting in a coordinated manner to respond to situations deriving from gender-based violence and social exclusion.
