Launch of the new project “Violence against Women in the Migrant City of El Alto: Prevention, Mitigation and Empowerment

Sunday October 31st, 2021

In October, the time had finally come – after long preparations, our new project “Violence against Women in the Migrant City of El Alto: Prevention, Mitigation and Empowerment” could finally begin. The project is a further development of the tecnical training courses we have been offering in El Alto for many years. However, with the newly designed project, we are responding to the alarming increase in violence against women during the Corona pandemic, perpetrated by their partners or ex-partners. In the first project component, “Prevention”, participants attend courses on self-esteem, women’s rights and self-defence. The second component, “Mitigation”, offers participants affected by family violence the counselling and support of a psychologist. The third component, “Empowernment”, is designed to give women the opportunity for sustainable self-help in the form of the well-known and tested professional development courses. We are looking forward to an exciting time with the participants!
