Reduction of Violence against Women and Girls, and Enhanced Quality of Public Services for Survivors of Violence
The project’s main objective is to contribute to the reduction of violence against women and girls by means of improved offers for survivors and preventive measures in Montserrado and Margibi County, Liberia. Implemented by medica Liberia, a Liberia-based non-governmental and non-profit organisation, the project pursues a multi-sectoral, holistic approach: establish and strengthen local protection networks; provide medical, legal and psychosocial quality counselling and treatment for survivors of violence; improve public services through training and raising awareness on gender issues and sexual gender based violence (SGBV). The main target groups are 48 local protection networks consisting of women’s support groups, core committees, watch teams and girls clubs that play an important role for the prevention of violence against women in their communities.
