The global objective of this call for proposals is to contribute to gender equality and improving the status of women and girls in the Southern Neighbourhood countries.  

The specific objectives of this call for proposals are: (i) to support national stakeholders in developing and implementing practical and targeted information, awareness-raising and education activities aimed at preventing and combating violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the Southern Neighbourhood countries; (ii) to develop the capacity of civil society organisations in the Southern Neighbourhood countries, and notably women’s organisations, promoting legislation criminalising VAWG and (iii) the establishment of a civil society mechanism to follow the achievements on VAWG made by the national governments in the Southern Neighbourhood countries.

The regional campaign will aim to contribute to the achievement of the following:

  • Changing perceptions, attitudes and behaviours towards violence against women and girls, with the overall objective and aim of preventing it from happening;
  • Encouraging men and boys to challenge sexism and gender norms that promote or enhance acts of violence against women, and actively engage in the fight against violence against women;  
  • Informing victims, including victims along the migration routes and victims of human trafficking, about their rights and the existing support services (shelters, helplines etc.) and protection measures available in their country or country of transit/destination.
