SUNIA GEEL 2 - Daphne ProgrammeSUNIA GEEL is an expression that comes from the Cant language of Irish Travellers and that can be translated into “Take care of yourself”. This is the name of a new European initiative funded by Daphne III Programme (DG Justice). It started on 1st March 2013 and will have a duration of 2 years.

In Bucharest (Romania), the initial meeting took place between the participating organisations coming from five different European countries: Ireland, Romania, Germany, Austria and Italy.

The project will work with ethnic minorities that are still highly marginalized in the countries involved. Various activities and tools will be used in working with the target groups in order to increase their awareness and skills in combating domestic violence.

Frequent updates about the activities of SUNIA GEEL 2 will be available on the website of the CESIE (www.cesie.org) and of the project: www.suniageel2.eu
