Description of the organization:

The STI (Women Rights Institute) association was founded on January 22, 1997 in Riga. It aims at balancing between both genders to stimulate progress of civil society.


In the last five years STI, together with LMSU, developed a training course addressed to senior women wishing to be trained as peer educators, providing health and social support to those still working in the field. Both the methodology and results of this project underwent linguistic and cultural adaptation for use in Lithuania and Latvia. Heppy project was also presented to the members of the Institute, in particular to women who are working in the health sector, and they expressed a huge interest in the project innovation. STI will continue to work on narrative medicine and informal health care.
