Association "Novi put" implements the project "Prevention of gender-based violence in Herzegovina Neretva Canton and West Herzegovina Canton" as of 1 July, 2021. The project aims to raise awareness about the issue of gender-based violence among women, men and youth.
During the street campaigns, we share the information and distribute materials we created for this project to raise awareness of gender-based violence and human trafficking, combat gender stereotypes among young people and the general public, and to ultimately contribute to reducing gender-based violence and trafficking in women. and girls.
As part of the project, a video was recorded, which marked the beginning of our campaign on the occasion of 16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
20 final-year students of psychology, social work, law, sociology and related studies completed a 3-month internship at the Counseling Center of the Association. During the internship, the interns acquired practical knowledge and skills in organizing the work of a counseling center, manners and methods of direct work with clients, which will enable them to apply the already acquired knowledge in practice.
As part of the project, we are organizing workshops for women with the aim of raising awareness about all forms of gender-based violence and human trafficking and encouraging women to report any form of violence.
Our Help Line is available to anyone who wants to report violence or ask for help, and in our free counseling we provide professional psycho-social and legal assistance to victims of all forms of violence and human trafficking.
