We have knowledge to share in training about the topic of DV. Also in the area of public awareness we can say that cooperation of more organisations gives bigger opportunity to be visible in public.
we believe that being part of network is the key for getting our voice more heard in public. Also we believe that we have already a lot to share from our side. And thisi is our goal-to be there, share and learn.
