“Information is the most powerful tool for solution of any problem, especially when the problem concerns domestic violence”; “The information we received, is important for everyone. We will disseminate it everywhere so that every woman knows what mechanisms exist in terms of women support”, these were the opinions of the participants of the information meetings held on the initiative of the Women Support Centers of Zugdidi, Vani and Bagdati.

According to the participants, informing process contributes to early identification of cases of violence and timely response to them. As a result of the meetings, specific cases were identified and women who are at risk of violence were redirected to a psychologist.
