ASSOCIAIZONE SPAZIO DONNA
Spazio Donna Onlus è un’Associazione attiva sul territorio di Caserta dal 1989 che concretamente lavora per l’autonomia, la libertà e la consapevolezza delle donne.
Ha come obiettivo prioritario la costante attenzione ai bisogni delle donne, non solo sostenendo orientamenti e proposte ma soprattutto avviando, gestendo, e sviluppando concrete iniziative contro la violenza alle donne e i loro figli minori. Attraverso il Telefono Rosa, attività che Spazio Donna porta avanti in partenariato con l’ASL di Caserta, le utenti hanno la possibilità di comunicare tra donne in modo semplice e rapido e mantenendo l’anonimato. L’obiettivo del Telefono Rosa è far sì che ogni donna sia in grado di conoscere e sviluppare le proprie possibilità, confrontarsi con altre per la risoluzione dei problemi. Le operatrici volontarie, adeguatamente formate, sono coadiuvate da un gruppo di consulenti (avvocati, medici, ostetriche, psicologhe, sociologhe, assistenti sociali, etc.), che collaborano all’attività condividendo gli obiettivi dell’associazione. Spazio Donna ha gestito lo storico Nido Rosa, sorto sul territorio di Casagiove nel 1988, primo in Campania ad offrire ospitalità per donne maltrattate, sole o con figli minori, italiane ed extracomunitarie, madri nubili, ragazze vittime della tratta e minori vittime di violenza sessuale. Si è differenziato dalle altre case rifugio del territorio per l’assenza di obbligatorietà di residenza che ha permesso l’accoglienza di donne straniere, donne residenti in altre province d’Italia e immigrate.
Ad oggi Spazio Donna gestisce due Centri Antiviolenza e due Case Rifugio. Il CADM (Centro di Accoglienza per Donne in difficoltà), attivo sul territorio di Caserta da maggio 2008 e sorto all’interno delle attività previste dalla Legge Regionale 328/00 per volontà delle Amministrazioni dei Comuni dell’Ambito C7: Caserta, Casagiove, Castel Morrone e San Nicola La Strada. L’ultimo nato è il CENTRO AURORA, Casa Rifugio e Centro Antiviolenza nato nel 2013 e sito nel territorio di Piedimonte Matese.
Nel 2013 inoltre Spazio Donna, in sinergia con l’Asl Caserta, coordina il PRONTO SOCCORSO ROSA, spazio di prima accoglienza rivolto alle donne che subiscono violenza situato all’interno del Pronto Soccorso dell’Ospedale San Rocco di Sessa Aurunca. La Casa delle Donne- Centro Interculturale Educativo, promuove la buona nascita come evento fondamentale nella vita di ogni singolo individuo, accompagnando le madri, le coppie e la famiglia durante tutto il percorso della gravidanza e del primo anno di vita del bambino. Spazio Donna da sempre promuove, nelle scuole primarie e secondarie, percorsi di sensibilizzazione alla non–violenza e alla cultura di genere per prevenire i comportamenti violenti. Spazio Donna diffonde esempi e realtà di buone prassi per quanto concerne la formazione permanente degli adulti, con uno sguardo sempre più attento alle problematiche femminili.

LICEUL TEORETIC GEORGE CALINESCU
Liceul Teoretic George Calinescu is situated in Constanta, a town on the Black Sea Coast, very close to a summer resort called Mamaia. Wet each students aged 11 to 19, who study science, but also foreign languages in bilingual and intensive classes, i.e. they have between four to six foreign language classes a week. In addition, students also study the history, geography and the culture and civilization of the respective countries. Our school offers a wide range of languages and encourages students to sit different exams certified by international organizations such as the Cambridge University, the Goethe Institute, the Cervantes Institute and the French Ministry of Education. Our high school is nominated as exam center for the Cambridge exams by the British Council in Bucharest and also hosts the DELF and DELE exams. We are also recognized as centre for the ECDL exams in Information Technology.
We are also members of a network of high schools which organize, in conjunction with the French department of the embassy responsible for cultural relations and educational opportunities, a special type of baccalaureate. The students who manage to pass this exam receive a diploma with a special mention, which enables them to enroll for a French university without any other language certificate.
However, our school is also confronted with some serious problems. For example, some of our students as old as 16, who come from remote rural areas, live in rented apartments, far from parental supervision. Some of them end up with a lot of non-attendance marks and risk being expelled from school or simply drop out. They are also an easy prey for those who recruit youngsters for pornography, prostitution, drug dealing, and are often victims of abuse. There are also students who separents work abroad, and who are looked after by relatives or neighbors and who face psychological and emotional difficulties. In addition to that, a growing number of our students have learning difficulties because they come from disorganized families or from families where they are physically or emotionally abused by violent parents.
