The Need to Connect project…

The objective of the Need to Connect (NTC) project is to fight loneliness, empower and connect young mothers, 18-30 years of age, through art training and a sustainable national community platform in all partner countries. With partners from Iceland, Slovenia, Italy, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Spain and Lithuania the project focuses on giving the young mothers the opportunity and capability to impact and help other mothers in similar situations. The overall objective is to raise awareness of issues among young mothers in Europe, to develop a curriculum and training program that can be used as a tool for empowerment and connection by all interested parties, and to build up a national sustainable community of young mothers.
