During the project time, experts, workers and trainers involved in adult education from each partner organization will gain specialized competences to educate victims of domestic violence and adult people they work with to develop a culture of gender equality and to combat and prevent domestic violence.
The specific competences gained, during this project by the individuals involved in adult education will improve the capacity of our organizations dealing with the short-term joint staff training events.
