Preventive program
 
The trained staff of Crisis Center " Hope " almost 10 years continuously works on protection, education and raising awareness and knowledge about domestic violence through workshops, trainings and campaigns that include promotional/informational materials for the work of the association, media interviews for television, statements for the print media, as well as its own website. We use all of these different tools for presentation of our work and exploration of the problem of domestic violence, its dynamics, escalation and most importantly information for self protection or for helping somebody else. 
 
Domestic Violence
 
The development of the preventive program begins in 2004 and since then we have implemented more than 20 projects in more than 10 cities (Debar, Prilep, Strumica, Kumanovo, Kicevo etc.) on the territory of Macedonia, with special emphasis on the City of Skopje and the Municipality of Gazi Baba. We are experienced in working with the following target groups: women, rural women, young women and girls and boys high schools. It is important to note that while working with different ethnic groups we take into account the cultural specificities of each group associated with risks of violence against women and domestic violence.
 
Violence against women
 
The preventive work in this section is consisted of workshops and trainings for young girls and women, introduction to the problem of violence against women (sexual harassment in school, on the streets, on the workplace, violence by intimate partner, violence from a family member, etc.). Through these workshops and trainings definitions of violent versus healthy relationship are presented and explained, then myths and facts about sexual harassment, personal care and steps for assistance and protection from institutions of the system.
 
In addition, the workshops and trainings are dynamic and interactive, with chances for debate and discussion with the participants where they can express their views on the above issues, the impact of society, pop culture and the media on their views and attitudes.
 
 
Comments from participants:
 
There should be more organizations to protect women’s rights.
 
I liked most that the workshop was relaxed, interesting and very useful. We should know these things.
 
I find the workshop as very useful. We should have the possibility to attend more similar workshops in order to be well informed.
