The phenomenon of violence against women is a constant in human history. Despite public administrations and civil society efforts, gender-based violence remains a reality. Globally, every year between 1.5 and 3 million of women and girls lose their life as a result of gender-based violence.
In Spain, despite of in the last years there have been significant changes in the field of the fight against domestic violence and gender-based violence, this kind of violence remain a daily reality and affects a higher number of women, especially if these women are strangers.
Cepaim Foundation has the mission to promote an inclusive and intercultural society model which facilitate the full access to citizenship rights of the most vulnerable people in our society. The NGO has created the “Adelante Program” to increase the social and labour situation of women who are in the most vulnerable groups. For do that, they make activities with the aim to foment gender equality and the conciliation for private and working lives in order to avoid multiple discrimination in terms of gender.
From today, our e-commerce with a cause PcComponentes, will collaborate with Cepaim Foundation to create preventive measures to combat gender-based violence against women. These measures will be joined with other actions of direct intervention to the victims made by different entities and State administrations.
