A virtual reality project to help single mothers

The funds raised during this event will be invested in the Villa Pierrot’s virtual reality project. The organization aims to use virtual reality as an intervention and support tool for its residents, and to be a pioneer in a new approach in addressing various psychosocial issues.

Virtual reality is considered a tool for realism that helps manage reality better. The main objectives are to experiment with a new support and intervention tool; to address situations in a safe and controlled environment and context; and to address psychosocial issues experienced by residents. For nearly twelve years, Villa Pierrot has been working with single mothers. Experienced counselors support residents in various aspects of their lives as mothers, women, workers, students, and citizens.
