In the past 13th November 2019, all partners of Project WhomeN were gathered to discuss the current situation of project activities.
The main objective of this meeting was to discuss about the Protocol (Curriculum) – final version revision and recommendation for improvements, presented by Fundación Aljaraque and LEB, as well as the Interactive platform that hosts the protocol, main contents and sections, the self-evaluation tool and next stages.
The next activities foreseen will be the Pilot Implementation of the Protocol that will be developed by each partner (except LEB, EY and YCF) through training courses for women at each country and coordinated by expert commitee. Don’t miss more news on this. Follow us also on facebook

Developing an online platform to support the day-to-day work of carers of people with cognitive disabilities and delaying development of the disease is the most important task that participating organizations in the ACTIMENTIA project must accomplish.
The purpose of the study was to allow a step of fine tuning of the Project strategy with a deeper diagnosis of women situation, training needs and difficulties. With the study it will be easier to define soft skills acquisition/recognition paths and to better propose the experimentation of this protocol.
This study was conducted in seven countries, where women were divided in two main categories: (1) immigrant and refugee women from Germany, Italy (Veneto region), Romania and Spain (Andaluzia) and (2) women over 45 from Bulgaria, Latvia and Slovenia. Continue reading

At the beginning of February 2019, the first project meeting of the ACTIMENTIA consortium was held in Münster, Germany.
ACTIMENTIA 2018-1-DE02-KA204-005231 is an ongoing European collaborative project that has been funded with the support of the Erasmus+ program (KA2) of the European Union. It lasts from 2018 to 2021.
Imperceptibly passed the 3-year WHOLE project, which was launched in September 2016. During the past time, the project consortium consisting of different organizations from 6 European countries, inc. two universities, managed to carry out a variety of activities to develop and implement the project proposal tasks and to reach project goals.
The curriculum serves the need to train adult education professionals for their work with women at risk of social exclusion and fewer educational opportunities. The training based on that curriculum should help the practitioners to support women with fewer opportunities to get aware of their transversal and social skills and to strengthen them with the aim to increase their chances of an adequate equal integration into the labor market.
