The meeting with the Mayor of Gelnica was focused on the presentation of the project “We stand by women! We protect and support them!” and also the presentation of OZ HANA. We talked about the planned opening of a branch in Gelnica, about the possibilities of cooperation, the activities of the HANA Counselling Centre, how the new branch will work and what we will provide within it.
The project „We stand with women. We protect and support them!“ benefits from a 486 622 € grant from Norway through the Norway Grants. The project has been co-financed from the State Budget of the Slovak Republic in the amount of 72 993 €.
The aim of the project is to increase availability of specialist counselling centres for women – survivors of intimate partner violence and their children in Kosice region by enhancing and increasing the quality of support services in the existing counselling centres in Košice, Michalovce and Spišská Nová Ves and establishing new counselling centres in Rožňava, Gelnica and Sobrance. At the same time, our aim is to make information about the counselling centres and help and support they provide more available to women in Košice region and to improve the response of institutions where women and children seek protection from violence.
The project is implemented by Fenestra in partnership with OZ HANA and OZ Pomoc rodine.
