WAVE is launching a new project in cooperation with the Moldovan umbrella organisation for violence protection “National Coalition Life Without Violence” titled TAVAM (Together Against Violence in Austria and Moldova). This project aims to strengthen the capacity of Moldovan women’s specialist services and to advance the transfer of knowledge between Austrian and Moldovan organisations. For this purpose, a series of training events in Moldova with participation of Austrian experts will take place in 2023, followed by a conference in Chisinau, where the results will be presented.
The activities will make an important contribution to the implementation of the Istanbul Convention in Moldova (which was ratified by the Republic of Moldova in October 2021). In order to better accompany this process, there is a need for women’s specialist services to learn and share strategies from other countries that have already implemented the Convention, as well as consider how to do this in light of the challenges arising from the war in Ukraine. The project has been made possible with generous funding from the Austrian Ministry for Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection.
More information regarding the project and outcomes will follow in 2023!
