This project increases support for women and girls’ rights and protection from gender-based violence (GBV) in selected districts of Cabo Delgado province in Mozambique. It does this by strengthening the GBV response from multiple sectors and enhancing community systems that support women and girls’ rights, including through preventing GBV and other harmful practices. Project activities include: (1) training and monitoring teams from multiple sectors (for example, healthcare workers and school gender focal points/contacts) at provincial and district levels on GBV case management; (2) supporting the Cabo Delgado GBV development partner coordination group in their humanitarian and development interventions; (3) creating safe spaces for women and girls that provide mentoring and life-skills lessons, vocational training and start-up kits for income generation in four target districts; and (4) supporting women’s associations and organizations of persons with disabilities to improve their GBV case management capacity. The project focuses on reaching vulnerable groups with GBV services and referrals. These vulnerable groups include women and girls and people living with disabilities and albinism.
