In April, the topic of mobilization meetings was chosen "Advocacy and its stages." Mobilizers of Women Support Centers have been trained on this topic more than once and this is quite logical, as they often have to visit different instances to advocate the problems. This time they explained to the beneficiaries how they can carry out advocacy, which steps they should pass. They were given specific examples and information about the services existing in the municipalities. 27 meetings were held in 9 municipalities.
Consultative meetings and sessions with beneficiaries were held in Women Support Centers of Khoni, Senaki, Poti, Tskaltubo, Ozurgeti and village Khurcha. In April the psychologist worked with 13 couples, 3 of them were new. 5 couples improved relationship, their family life also improved.
The work in Kutaisi is very active, 13 beneficiaries continue to receive psycho - therapeutic consultations.
Meetings with couples continue. In April, three couples used the advice of psychologist and conflictologist. Meetings are envisaged for prevention of conflict situations at an early stage. The methods, used during the meetings, help couples to overcome the risks of conflict.
In frames of the small project of Terjola Women Support Center, the cycle of meetings with representatives of different communities of the municipality continues.
