The “Strength is in you” project promotes healthy communication and supports women and girls in breaking gender stereotypes and breaking cycles of violence, prejudice, and burnout at work and in relationships, and empowers them to speak out against injustice.
The first workshops (Phase 1) were implemented on August 13 and 14, 2022 in Mostar, and the second Phase on August 30 and 31 in Blagaj. In the final Phase, implemented on September 19th, the participants shared their experience during the round table, and created a plan to address these topics with the general public.
Through thematic sessions, the participants learned techniques that they can use to assess the relationship they have with their close circles, recognize threats, learn to set healthy boundaries and thus protect their mental and physical health. They were also encouraged and taught how to seek legal support and counselling.
Finally, this project aimed to create a strong network and solidarity among women, who will support and empower each others growth.
