Ogni donna che vince la violenza, cambia il mondo
THE DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE
Every woman who overcomes violence changes the world
WHO WE ARE
Differenza Donna is an NGO born in 1989 to make visible, prevent and combat violence against women. We believe they are a great social resource only when their rights and aspirations are respected.
Our mission is to make every woman an authoritative, economically independent person, full of dignity and wisdom, who knows the value of gender difference and works in solidarity with other women. To achieve this goal, we have chosen the Anti-Violence Centers as a strategic tool since they function as places of freedom and life-enhancement for women looking for guidance, support, and legal advice in times of great difficulty.
So far, we have welcomed over 35,000 women and 60,000 boys and girls.
We have always invested in raising awareness on violence against women and focus on prevention in schools so to spread a culture that allows young people to build an authentic and positive relationship, based on respect and the value of the other.
THE PROJECT "THE DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE"
The help offered to women coming out of violence is insufficient regards to what is established by the Istanbul Convention of the Council of Europe. Because of that, we feel the need to do more and more.
We want to build a new project: THE DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE. A place of exit from violence and empowerment for all women in need, but in particular for the most vulnerable ones: women who want to protect their sons and daughters, and women with disabilities, the most exposed to the risk of violence.
TheDIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE will be in the Prati district of Rome, in Via Tacito n. 90, at a property confiscated from criminality that has been assigned to us by the Court of Rome for social purposes. We will make it available to the community as a vehicle of support to the rights and autonomy of women fleeing violence and for their boys and girls who witness such violence.
To achieve this goal, we will not have financial aid from institutions or public bodies. This is why we ask you to be at our side, at the side of all women, none excluded, and at the side of the little ones who deserve respect and well-being to grow with dignity and free from violence.
The DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE will be a lively place, inhabited by and for women. They will be able to count on the work of expert operators with different professional skills: psychologists, educators, job counselors, and specialized lawyers. Each woman will receive from them the necessary support to establish together a tailored project to exit violence.
It will not only be a place for fleeing violence but also for the re-elaboration of one's own experience to regain motivation and self-awareness. Women will be able to access their stories from a new perspective, which will allow them to free themselves and grow self-esteem and self-determination.
ATTENTION TO CHILDREN AND GIRLS WHO HAVE WITNESSED VIOLENCE
Where there is a woman/mother who is a victim of violence, there is a boy or girl who suffers. Every day, many children suffer violations of their fundamental rights, silently, without leaving a trace. They become invisible. The damage they suffer affects their lives, their psychophysical health, their relationship with themselves, their body, their self-esteem, and their relationships with others. The signs of the violence witnessed are profound and lasting.
TheDIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE will guarantee personalized paths that include all aspects of the well-being of boys and girls, but first of all, the relationship with their mother. We will offer attention and dedicated spaces to parenting support for mothers to help restore trust and return to being a reference figure. It is precisely from the mother's courageous action to exit violence that will begin the treatment for the trauma and the return to life.
LABORATORIES: Our laboratories are born from a thirty-year experience of activity in the Anti-Violence Centers. They are guided by the study of evolutionary age scholars who indicate the relationship between mother and children as essential in the child’s development.
The creative workshops will offer a protected family space in the DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE where mothers, sons, and daughters will be able to freely express themselves. These are paths of empowerment that draw from each one's potential and capacity of resilience.
SUPPORT FOR WOMEN WITH DISABILITIES
Violence affecting women and girls with disabilities is less perceived, even if precisely because of their vulnerability, they have more than twice as much the risk of suffering mistreatment and sexual violence (Istat data).
In many cases, they experience discrimination and violence by those who would have the task of protecting them, such as family members, social workers, health workers, and law enforcement officers. And too often they are not believed.
Many obstacles prevent them from emerging from situations of violence: the lack of awareness of the violence suffered, the dependence on the violent person, the communication barriers, the lack of information about their rights and dedicated services. Women with intellectual/cognitive disabilities are even more vulnerable. Their story is often mistaken for fantasy by intermediaries who are not prepared to recognize it.
Differenza Donna was the first association in Italy to engage in the fight against violence against women with disabilities and has developed a specialized division that has been active for more than 10 years.
The DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE will offer women with disabilities a dedicated space for listening and welcoming, other than guarantee them the opportunity to freely express their thoughts and have more easily access to justice and health.
In the HOME, women will receive psychological and legal support and orientation for hospitality in competent structures. Everything with clear one-to-one communication and use of appropriate methods (sign language, interpreters, braille method, tactile language, audio-readers, and in case of intellectual disability, a consultant who facilitates communication).
We will create self-mutual focus groups to support them in bringing out the violence they have gone through, finding the right protection and working out what has happened. They will thus be able to become aware of the violence, their rights and will increase their self-determination.
The DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE will also be the headquarters of the National Observatory on Violence against Women with Disabilities, established for the first time in Italy by Differenza Donna for monitoring, detecting, and researching the phenomenon. The elaboration of the results will allow studies that can make prevention and contrast more effective tools for Bodies and Institutions.
Thanks to the experience acquired over many years of managing the anti-violence centers, we know the women's ability to get up and reborn from the most difficult situations, to get back into the game and bring out an act of courage previously unknown.
For all this, we need you.
In the DIFFERENZA DONNA HOUSE, one goes back to imagining a new future.
A woman who overcomes violence changes the world.
Let's change it together.
