Priorities and funded actions

Objectives

Lot 1:

  • Contribute to justice through increased accountability for gender-based violations
  • Fight against impunity for perpetrators of gender-based violence, while taking into account the principle of “do no harm

Lot 2:

  • Strengthen the capacity of Guinean CSOs to engage in policy dialogue at national level and in the implementation and monitoring of development plans and programmes
  • Create funding opportunities for accompanied CSO projects by strengthening their capacities, particularly those required to manage these funds appropriately

Priorities

Lot 1:

  • Elaboration of a strategy to sensitise the population – and (young) men in particular – against violence against women/girls, for the respect of human rights and against all forms of violence
  • Sensitisation of the authorities and the general public on the need to ensure that those guilty of crimes of Gender Based Violence (GBV) including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Sexual Violence (SV) are brought to justice, through the development of communication campaigns
  • Advocacy towards the competent governmental authorities in order to face the increase of GBV cases in the country, to systematically collect data related to GBV, to measure the scope of the problem and to give it the priority it deserves from all points of view (judicial, medical, social, cultural)
  • Train authorities, law enforcement agencies (especially outside of Conakry), the media and social networks on human rights and the procedures to follow to ensure that they are respected, with a focus on GBV/FGM
  • Increase the effectiveness of prosecutions against perpetrators of GBV/ASM, including through improved legal assistance for victims
  • In agreement/collaboration with the authorities, create one-stop centres and/or collaborate with existing structures (preferable option) to provide sustainable and integrated protection services to victims of gender-based violence (health care, psychosocial support, legal and police services) with a survivor-centred approach
  • Support the collection of appropriate information, including statistical and research data

Lot 2:

  • Development of regular calls for proposals for Guinean CSO-initiated micro-projects (third party funding) to be selected/managed by the main contractor through a simplified procedure
  • Capacity building of Guinean CSOs

  • Awareness campaigns/civic education at the community and individual levels, information/training for young men and women on GBV/VSBG/FGM and human trafficking in order to alert them to the risks/consequences and to mobilize the population in the fight against such violence
  • Cultural and educational awareness-raising activities at the community level / production and broadcasting of radio programmes in local languages to raise awareness about the fight against GBV/FGM and human trafficking and to promote the protection of women and children
  • Legal assistance provided to victims of GBV/FGM who have decided to prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes
