    Project Name

    Enhancing Inter-Agency Council On Violence Against Women

    Project Summary:

    There is a continuing need to provide services to victim/survivors of violence against women (VAW) despite the fact that government provides similar programs. This is so since social services for the poor especially for women have not resulted to any significant improvement in their lives. This project, will ensure that the gains that were achieved by Bathaluman through its advocacy for the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) will be sustained. This project also aims to continue the engagement with the local government in the aspect of mainstreaming gender in its programs.

    Thus, this project will ensure that there is sustained access and availability of services for traumatized VAW (violence against women) victims and build community-based sustainability mechanisms for their proection.
