This project will contribute to empowerment of women’s NGOs, as well as to their stronger voice in advocacy and watchdog activities and promoting system changes in the field of gender based violence. Women experiencing such violence and their children will benefit from the project. The project main activity is promotion of networking processes among women’s NGOs working in the field of violence against women, which will, in long term, lead to the creation of a formal national network of such NGOs.The project target groups are women’s NGOs and women experiencing violence.
