EMPROVE – Partner Meeting in Göttingen

The EMPROVE team is currently in Germany (April 2018), reviewing the feedback from testing the EMPROVE innovative platform in six EU countries … the official public launch of the platform is approaching!
The platform offers various missions to support women survivors of domestic violence to empower them by supporting them in reflecting on their strenghts and values. The platform is based on the theory of gamification and uses gamified elements aimed to engage the DV survivors in a long-term journey of empowerment. The platform combines solving different online or live missions and achievements, in addition to the face-to-face sessions with a counsellor, using also the power of the own self-confidence.
If you want to try out the platform, please contact the EMPROVE team at info@bupnet.de
