Chi siamo

We are a specialized NGO

Deliberately small but essential.
We strongly believe that also a little but efficient structure can make the difference.

GRT works in different fields

Salute mentale

Mental health

The Group for Transcultural Relations aims to find effective methods to support a different way of thinking and therapeutic practice from those in the West.

Minori in difficoltà

Children in adversity

The aim of the GRT is to defend the rights and wishes of children first and then to propose rehabilitation.

Violenza di genere

Gender violence

Gender based violence is widespread all over the world and is one of the most recurrent and difficult problems to solve.

Migrazioni forzate

Forced Migration

Our mission is to listen to people, accompany them and mediate in urban communities by building refuges.

Where we work

We intervene in those territories where mental health is not a priority. Where people that are mentally ill are often discriminated and isolated.
