About the Domestic Abuse Shelter
Over these past few weeks, our team has participated in an online field trip to Moinesti. During this time, we researched the livelihoods of the local community living in Lunca, Romania. We tried to find out how they cope with existing vulnerabilities and how public authorities, civil society organizations and the private sector influence their livelihoods. We collaborated with Romanian students from the University of Bacau, and together we held interviews with households and other stakeholders to gain a good understanding of the challenges they face. We then brainstormed on possible innovative ideas to support the community into improving their livelihoods. After settling on our idea, we presented it to the Romanian stakeholders to create an opportunity for them to give and for us to receive feedback. This feedback has been incorporated into the final innovation, which we are excited to present to you!
