Let’s make the Invisible – Visible

Period of implementation: September 2020 – August 2023

Social inclusion and empowerment of vulnerable groups is one of the topics of utmost importance at the EU level.  One of these categories is that of women who are still being discriminated against even in an EU context. Precisely, women segregated on multiple grounds such as ethnicity, migrant status, or age.

The project focuses on the issue of vulnerable groups (taking up marginalized communities, discriminated women, Roma groups, migrants/refugees) that are facing multiple discrimination in the EU countries – the Czech Republic, Romania, Poland, Austria and Slovakia.
The project consists of a three-step approach:

1) Strengthening cooperation and networking among partners, increasing competences and knowledge of the personnel of the partner organizations:

In the first project phase, the partner organizations will mutually learn and exchange best practices from their work with different groups of marginalized women. Three short training events (Cracow, Brno, and Vienna) will serve primarily as a platform for mutual learning.

2) Testing of innovative practices in the field of adult education and counseling:

Drama techniques and participatory coaching methods will be explored with the aim to identify methods empowering and enabling women who are discriminated against on multiple grounds. One handbook on innovative techniques to be used in adult education and counseling of marginalized women will be prepared together with a set of webinars dealing with selected innovative techniques and methods.

3) Raising awareness of the phenomenon of multiple discriminated women and their specific educational needs:

In the final project phase, video portraits of five women representing all participating countries will serve as well as a tool for distorting stereotypes connected to migrants, Roma, or old women.

Project partners: GIC NORA (Czech Republic), Peregrina (Austria), TRANSFER Slovensko (Slovakia), and Fundacja Kobieca (Poland)

The project is financed by the European Commission, Erasmus+ Programme, Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
