Stigmabase is a not-for-profit technology initiative dedicated to informing and raising awareness on the damaging effects of social exclusion and stigma around the world. The marginalization of individuals or categories of individuals is a too common phenomenon. Millions of people are facing this problem around the world and many complex factors are involved.
Stigmabase lists every day of the week (52 weeks per year) hundreds of news about social exclusion and its causes throughout the world in 23 languages. The initiative hopes to be a vehicle for change and combat social exclusion throughout the world.
The Stigmabase initiative is part of a universal approach and rejects any nationalist and fundamentalist character. Social action believes in equality between the sexes, races, cultures, and equal opportunities for all.
Focus Ireland was founded by Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy as a result of the finding of research into the needs of homeless women in Dublin. Through listening to he experiences of the women, the research team realised the importance of involving people who are experiencing or who had experienced homelessness in the development of services for people who are homeless.
Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or are at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. We offer individuals, and families, advice, support, education and housing to help people to have and keep a home. We believe that everyone has a right to a place they can call home and we campaign to address the causes of homelessness.
