Discussing the implementation of the project with clients of the programme, they recall that they came to the center with relatively little information on what will take place in the project. They were definitely aware of the number of consultations , 2 hours of compulsory physical work on a daily basis. They have been pleasantly surprised by the capability to work in the parent supported home kitchens, food preparation, learn new things in daily life, for example, waste recycling, sewing, knitting, crochet, stone work, burning words in wood etc . Women relate that not only do they learn how to recognize violence, but gain knowledge in how to protect themselves in the future. They are delighted about attending the gym and sauna treatments. On the other hand, they are not satisfied with the Centre’s rules limiting smoking. The clients expressed gratitude to the entire staff of the Centre for their humane treatment and support.
