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.
