Leadership and Political Participation;
Ending Violence Against Women;
The Ending Violence Against Women portfolio encompasses two main projects; the ‘Safe Cities for Women and Girls’ programme and the ‘Ending Violence Against Women: Survivor Centered Approach’ programme. Implemented in close collaboration with governmental and non-governmental organizations in Egypt, the former programme aims to ensure that women and girls are socially, economically and politically empowered in public spaces which are free from sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women. The latter programme aims to eliminate violence against women through the development of gender-sensitive policies and legal frameworks and capacity enhancement of service providers to ensure that they follow quality standards and protocols. Additionally, capacity development was provided to local NGOs on case management steps to address the immediate needs of women related to incidents of violence.
