This will be achieved through a multipronged, comprehensive approach and through three main activity clusters that are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. The campaign will help getting VAWG out of the private sphere and changing public attitudes.

An independent Civil Society Observatory to follow up on governmental commitments in the field of VAWG, WPS and PVE will ensure improved collective knowledge to support the adoption and implementation of policies.

The specific objectives of the project:

1. VAWG is addressed by civil society (CS) and decision makers alike as a social and political issue;

2. Capacities and number of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that combat VAWG is increased;
