Sunia Geel 2

Sunia Geel 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunia Geel derives from the Irish Traveller language, Cant. It translates "take care of yourself", and is viewed as an apt name for what Sunia Geel 2 aims to achieve: families being valued and supported.

The goal of this project is to provide a framework to reduce violence against women and children of marginalised ethnic communities and ensure that their needs for safety and support are met.

Target groups include:

  • Sinti and Roma in Romania and Italy;
  • Muslim migrants in Germany, Austria, Italy and Romania;
  • And Travellers in Ireland

The Project will provide an increased understanding of the needs of service users, thus creating the possibility of an improved response. It is critical that women are empowered to make informed and safe choices for themselves and their children. The incidence of domestic violence and intra-family violence will be reduced by promoting a zero tolerance approach within marginalised communities and amongst those delivering social services to ethnic minorities.

The main objectives of the project are:

  1. To develop a deeper more evidenced based understanding of the needs of service users from minority groups in relation to professional service provision;
  2. To empower women and children by increasing their skills base to help them make informed choices for a better future;
  3. To build the capacity of marginalised communities and service providers to initiate and promote change within their own environments that will enable them to address the issue of domestic violence and uphold the rights of women and children;
  4. To respond to women and children experiencing domestic violence by providing emotional and practical support in a culturally appropriate way.
