Description and results

Description

The project contributes to reducing sexual and gender-based violence against women, especially Indigenous women in the Departments of Alta Verapaz, Sololá and Chimaltenango and strengthens the poorest and most vulnerable’s access to justice. Gender-based violence has reached epidemic levels in Guatemala as patterns of violence against women committed during the 36-year internal armed conflict have continued, are seen as normal and are often tolerated. A majority of the victims are Indigenous women and girls. Project activities include: (1) providing legal, psychological and social services; (2) building the capacity of justice system actors through training and litigation of sexual violence cases with national impact; and (3) raising public awareness on gender-based violence.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased participation of women, particularly Indigenous women, from the Departments of Alta Verapaz, Sololá and Chimaltenango in the exercise of their rights for a violence free life; (2) improved services to women victims of violence and sexual violence by targeted justice system actors; and (3) increased respect for women's human rights and integrity by men, local public institutions and civil society organizations.
