1. ABOUT THE PROJECT

In order to understand domestic violence on children and society at all, it is important to enter the world of domestic violence. Domestic violence includes many forms of physical and emotional abuse, as well as neglect carried out by family members. It may include a single act of violence or a number of acts that form a pattern of abuse. Domestic violence can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences for victims, especially for children, and for those who see or hear the violence. The consequences that children have in living in such an environment affect the formation of their personality. Children who have grown up in families where there is domestic violence over time show deviant behavior. The activities planned in the training enable the participants to raise the level of their knowledge about this topic through them. Becoming aware of this problem will contribute to the early detection of cases of domestic violence as well as prevention of it. Children of abuse feel isolated and vulnerable. They are starved for attention, affection and approval. Because mom is struggling to survive, she is often not present for her children. Because dad is so consumed with controlling everyone, he also is not present for his children. These children become physically, emotionally and psychologically abandoned. Our main purpose of this project is to raise awareness among young people about this problem in our societies. Sumnalstudy addresses Romani women’s experience with domestic violence and their knowledge of the victim services. With this research, we had found out that in Romani’s families, domestic violence is more represented. For this reason, the accent of this project is preventing and recognizing domestic violence in the Roma population.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Rising awareness about the content of domestic violence on the participants at the training,
  • Becoming aware of factors that cause domestic violence on children
  • Rising awareness on participants about early recognition of forms and cases of domestic violence on children
  • Contributing to the fight against domestic violence on children by means of young people and organizations from different cultures.
  • Gaining information and knowledge on how to deal with domestic violence if it occurs
  • Obtaining information and procedures for organizations that handle this issue
  • Recognizing and analyzing the signs of children that live in families where there is domestic violence

Information about the city:

Bitola  Macedonian: Битола  (About this soundlisten) is a city in the southwestern part of North Macedonia. It is located in the southern part of the Pelagonia valley, surrounded by the Baba, Nidže and Kajmakčalan mountain ranges, 14 kilometres (9 miles) north of the Medžitlija-Níki border crossing with Greece. The city stands at an important junction connecting the south of the Adriatic Sea region with the Aegean Sea and Central Europe, and is an administrative, cultural, industrial, commercial, and educational centre. It has been known since the Ottoman period as “The City of The Consuls”, since many European countries had consulates in Bitola.

Bitola, known during the Ottoman Empire as Manastir/Monastir, is one of the oldest cities in North Macedonia. It was founded as Heraclea Lyncestis in the middle of the 4th century BC by Philip II of Macedon. The city was the last capital of Ottoman Rumelia, from 1836 to 1867. According to the 2002 census, Bitola is the second-largest city in the country. Bitola is also the seat of the Bitola Municipality.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

According to European Commission (http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=1217&langId=en) assuring the recognition of non-formal and informal learning outcomes helps to introduce 1st rule of European social rights pillar, which is: everybody has a right to inclusive education, characterized by a good quality, trainings and lifelong learning in order to get the skills helping in full participation in social life and dealing with changes in the labor market. People develop their skills and competences through their whole life – the recognition of such skills helps to integrate into the labor market and into society.

As an organization active in the volunteering field (both local and international) we also recognize the educational and social potential of volunteering projects. Volunteering is an accessible and inclusive activity, spreading common values of society. It gives a chance for getting necessary work experience, skills development and social inclusion. In order to use its potential, especially in working with youth, it is important to match volunteering work with volunteers needs, so that it is engaging and helps to learn. Moreover, the volunteers express often that they gain „a lot” from volunteering, but they can hardly identify the exact skills and competencies they gained. Meanwhile, the recognition of such skills and competences is crucial for transferring it to the labor market and presenting it to the potential employer.

In order to change such situation and enable better volunteering projects preparation (with taking into consideration the needs and motivation of the people involved and by identifying potential and competencies they offer), we want to deliver a long-term project for organizations working with volunteers.
This project fits in one of the priorities of Erasmus+ Programme, which aims to „overcome the crisis (unemployment) by strengthening and developing education systems and enabling gaining new skills required by employers.” and increasing the recognition of the skills and competences gained through volunteering.

THE AIM

Objectives of the project:
– Increase the level and intensity of cooperation between program countries and partner countries from WB. Related to this is also the long-term aim of creating a robust youth anti-corruption platform focused on the WB but working with a decidedly inter-regional and trans-sectoral perspective.
– Increase the capacities of youth organizations based in WB.
– Increase the competences of youth workers in WB, the EU and beyond.
– Educate youth about recognizing, reporting and fighting corruption.
– Establish the image of the EU as a supranational entity taking a stand against corrupt practices.
– Design a toolkit for educating youth about corruption.
– Educate the general public about corruption in their country and ways of opposing it.
