mental health - traditional medicine

 

The incredible strenght of mentally ill people and their disconcerting fragility have made it possible for GRT to be involved in mental health projects to support these people and their families in South America and in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia. 

With regard to traditional medicine instead, GRT aims at finding effective methods of support for a way of thinking and a therapeutic practice which are different from the Western one. 

Nepal

In Nepal GRT has been dealing mostly with ethnic minorities and child protection by working closely with local partners. At the same time, after having carefully examined the needs of the country, GRT has also worked with topics such as violence against women and traffic of human beings, especially women and children. The work has mostly been focused on the causes that bring people to be victims, like extreme poverty, family breakdown, domestic violence or gender discrimination. 

GRT has then supported Nepal during the earthquake of 2015 as well as helping the country with the project HelpLine, to defend and promote children's rights in different contexts such as family, school and community.
