Gender equality promoted and Gender-Based Violence combatted
The aim of this call is to promote gender equality and combat gender-based violence. Gender equality, besides being a fundamental human right, is essential to achieve peaceful societies, with full human potential and sustainable development. Gender equality implies that the interests, needs and priorities of both women and men are taken into consideration, thereby recognizing the diversity of different groups of women and men. Equality between women and men is seen both as a human rights issue and as a precondition for, and indicator of, sustainable people-centred development.
The projects that will be selected under this call for proposals will aim at promoting, protecting and respecting gender equality, as well as, combatting gender-based violence. More specifically, the projects that will be selected will aim at strengthening advocacy and raising awareness on gender equality issues; monitoring violations related to gender equality and supporting gender-based violence victims; educating citizens, organisations and civil servants on issues related to gender equality and gender-based violence and strengthening collaboration of CSOs with Media in order to promote issues related to gender equality and gender-based violence.
