* Lot 2: Protection and promotion of the rights of vulnerable groups and persons

Priorities
* Lot 1:

Among financed actions
* Lot 1:
– Analysis and studies, if not already existing, of the situation that prevents (inequality/discrimination) women and young people to fully enjoy certain specific economic and social rights  and activities that will bring about real change in this situation;

– Promotion of women’s representation on boards of directors, business associations, farmers and workers, community and other bodies;
– Citizen engagement activities for women/young people through the arts and various forms of cultural expressions

* Lot 2:
– Creation of mechanisms to identify victims of violence and provide legal and/or medical assistance at the local and national level (referencing through Community structures, access to appropriate care, psychological support, housing through the creation of shelters, re-integration into society, self-defense training for women, etc.);
– Capacity building for associations and their members through, for example, training in the area of specialisation of the association (women’s rights, indigenous people, migrants, children, etc.) and more generally on project management, budgetary and administrative management and advocacy;
