Tamaia, Living without violence is a pioneering institution key in the fight against gender violence. It was born as a result of the relationship between a group of women victims of domestic violence and a group of professionals working in a shelter for battered women. All those women realized that, once having finished the shelter period, there were no institutions able to give the specific support to those women who had abandoned home, escaping domestic violence . This distancing has been necessary to build a new life far from violence. Altogether, with enthusiasm and energy, we started our social project on 1992 as an association. Nowadays, we are a social non-profit cooperative.
