Project / Programme Title
Accelerating women and girls rights project
Brief Project Description
The WONGI project objective is to contribute to eradication of gender based violence (GBV) against women and girls in Marracuene and Manhiça districts (Mozambique) by strengthen women and girl’s auto-confidence and capacity to break the silence and challenge harmful culture practices as well as promoting a safe and free violence envirnoment at schools and communityies. The project target group will cover different levels: individual, organizational and political by involving different stakeholders (girls, women, boys, parents, government, community leaders, etc) to change attitudes, practices and behavior to create sustainable changes in women and girl’s lives. The above GBV issues will be addressed in two ways to achieve 4 central results as follow: a) To promote changes at individual and community levels, the project will prioritize empowerment and solidarity actions that includes awareness, capacity development, organisation, mobilisation/activism, knowledge & best practices sharing, platforms/networks strengthening as well as strengthening of the formal referral mechanisms for violence. These actions will result on - (1) women and girls knowing their rights and actively challenging violence, sexual abuse, harmful practices and beliefs such as pregnancy, early marriage and widow cleansing. To influence changes at political levels the project will focus on monitoring of policy implementation to ensure ´Duty Bearers’ accountability and conducting lobbying, advocacy, recommending alternatives practices to end GBV and secure a safe free violence environment for women and girls. These actions will result on – (2) existence of an operational multi-stakeholder group and integrated service centre in the two districts, with trained and expert members on women and girls rights protection against all types of violence and sexual abuse; (3) Local and national government allocating necessary resources for better implementation of laws and policies protecting women´s and girls’ from violence (e.g. law against domestic violence and the strategy against early marriage) and (4) women and girls will have access to information, health services and quality basic education that allows them to have knowledge and skills to actively participate in decision-making processes at all levels. WONGI will be a three years project (2016-2019) and it will be implemented by ActionAid Mozam-bique in coordination with his partners MULEID & Forum Mulher (at Central level); UCAM (União das cooperativas de Marracuene) and NADEC (Núcleo Académico para o Desenvolvimento Co-munitário) at district level in Marracuene and Manhiça respectively.
