TAMAIA’S project is part of the genealogy of active women involved in the defence of freedom and the rights of women against patriarchal violence. The central idea that lies behind our task is to support Women who ask for help in order to stop the violence cycle. Their recovery process is our main objective. We help them to start an identifying and healing process of their suffering. We accompany them, in a singular and respectful way, on their route to freedom.
We are working to bring the real possibility for Women to build a new life without violence after they have become conscious of the abuse they have lived through. This is our priority programme: Therapeutic care for abused Women (We give therapeutic support and specialized long lasting follow-up for women).
“I've learned to look at people in the eye when they talk to me because now I do not have anything to hide”. After six years of therapy I know who I am and although I don’t know yet who I want to be,. I know I never want to stop being a little better and a little more myself. This young girl I dreamt of being when I was a child and that one day I abandoned for a false promise, they lived happily ever after”.

As a " continuum ", Tamaia’s project is focused on raising public awareness in people who build our Society in order to identify and eliminate traces of violent and abusing attitudes in their social behaviour. We promote individual and social models respectful of and committed to living without violence. In the same spirit and in parallel with therapeutic care for women, we have developed two training programmes and public awareness in order to contribute with our knowledge as a way of eradicating violence from our cultural context:
- Prevention and Social Participation Programme
- Training and Research Programme
