Description 

This project aims to increase peace, security, and stability in Ethiopia. Project activities include: (1) working with local leaders – including women – from formal and informal institutions to strengthen violence prevention, conflict management, and Conflict Early Warning (CEW) mechanisms; (2) delivering trauma-healing counselling for conflict-affected women, men, girls, and boys. Also, provide essential referrals for GBV survivors; and (3) collaborating with leaders (women and men) to actively promote gender equality in peacebuilding.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved capacities of government, women's associations, Peace Committees and other formal and informal institutions to inclusively prevent and manage conflict in Afar, Oromia, and Somali regions; (2) increased capacity for inclusive offline and online peacebuilding among young women and men in conflict-prone areas of Afar, Oromia, and Somali regions; (3) improved capacity of government and conflict management groups to facilitate survivor-centred support and referrals for GBV (including sexual violence) survivors and trauma affected women, men, girls, and boys in the Afar region; (4) increased skills and confidence of women to lead peacebuilding initiatives; and (5) enhanced allyship among members of peacebuilding committees, community leaders, and other gatekeepers, and in particular men and boys, in support of women's leadership in peacebuilding.
