Survivors. This is how we refer to women whose stories can give other women courage, if they face abuse, feel alone and don't know what do to. Through this project, we aim at creating local support groups and networks that can save lives. The first step is to trust that you too can do it!
A.L.E.G. is a nongovernmental organization working since 2004 to prevent and fight violence against women and children and to promote gender equality; it is based in Sibiu and unfolds both local and national activities. We offer psychological counselling services to family violence victims, women and children. Based on our beneficiaries’ needs, in the autumn of 2017, we came up with the idea of the campaign #SiEuReusesc. Find out more about us on our website: www.aleg-romania.eu. Local partners of the project at national level are Pas Alternativ Association (Brașov), Anais Association (Bucharest), Gr.Ab (Satu Mare) and #ȘiEuReușesc Cluj.
... the starting point of becoming free. The moment she tells herself that she too can do it, a domestic violence victim takes a first step towards becoming a survivor. It’s not an easy road, but it’s important for her to start walking it and, to this end, she needs support and examples of other women who have succeeded. Because we are stronger together, we support the creation of local support groups and give women the opportunity to share their experiences, to overcome their fears, and to grow stronger. Are you a survivor? Set up a support group in your city or take part in the meetings of an existing one.
