Project Objectives

In our modern European societies, gender-based violence (GBV) continues to be a widespread phenomenon impacting on young people's lives regardless of their religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status or level of education. There is also evidence to suggest that youth workers need more capacity to deal with this persistent phenomenon, putting emphasis on supporting marginalised groups of girls and young women as they tend to be more exposed to GBV.


Increasing young people's awareness of their rights and responsibilities within the scope of GBV discrimination, exclusio, abuse and other negative forms
