EU Contribution

€166,000

Description: The action will help to reinforce civil society’s capacity to constructively counteract gender-based violence on the one hand, and on the other, to promote LGBTI rights by promoting cultural changes within the society and enhancing the capacity of civil society organisations (CSOs) to counter the issues at hand. It aims to achieve that through the linking of policy work, enhanced data collection, using creative strategies to engage with, and raise awareness among, different sectors of society and actively involve different communities and stakeholders.

The project is being implemented by the Interarts Foundation, Caribbean Association for Feminist Research and Action-CAFRA and Advocates for Safe Parenthood (Saint Lucia)-ASPIRE.
