The project "South Baltic area - Violence Free Zone" is answering a need for cooperation and exchange of good practices on ways of opposing and preventing domestic violence against women between civil society organizations, local governments and institutions like police or crisis intervention centers. The main goal of the project is to declare and create "Violence against women free zone" in the South Baltic Region. Our main goal is to make our region friendlier and safer for women. The countries from this region have different historical, social or political background but there is the common problem, namely - Violence Against Women.
