Training and education

Knowledge about men’s violence against women and the consequences of violence is a prerequisite to providing adequate support to women subjected to violence.

Knowledge is also important in order to change values and attitudes in society and to work efficiently to prevent violence. This is why training and education is one of the cornerstones of NCK’s work.
