Gender Resource Center

Developed within the “Vis - à - Vis” project - Experimental Empowerment Actions, the Gender Resource Center is an innovative space that aims to respond to the needs of women and their families (including single-nuclear and single-parent families), taking into account of the considerable difficulties connected to a welfare system that is often insufficient and/or which promotes fragmented interventions, sometimes more aimed at welfare support, rather than truly aimed at empowerment.
It is based on a specific reading of the context, in reference to the need for prevention of all forms of violence, promotion of healthy relationship styles, support for parenting skills and educational co-responsibilities, promotion and concrete support for the reconciliation of time .
