Spotlight Initiative Guyana - Call for Proposals For Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) (CFP BRB30/CFP 2021/02)

Date: Thursday, May 20, 2021

The UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) Caribbean is seeking to partner with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for the development of community accountability mechanisms on key Intimate Partner Violence/Sexual Gender Based Violence-related issues.

The community accountability scorecards in the 2 communities should focus on key Intimate Partner Violence/Sexual Gender Based Violence-related issues and warning systems. They should avoid complicated questions and allow accessibility by anyone regardless of their level of education, class or income. They should be developed through continuous engagement and learning as well as risk management. It is expected that the strengthening of technical and operational capacities of CSOs through the community accountability scorecards will contribute to women's rights groups, autonomous social movements and relevant CSOs, including those representing youth and groups facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination/marginalization, being able to more effectively influence and advance progress on Gender Equality and Women Empowerment (GEWE) and ending violence against women and girls (VAWG).

The resources being made available under the Spotlight Project for CSOs are as follows:

  • 2 CSOs at USD 35,000 equivalent each

Additionally, two virtual sessions will be held on May 25, 2021 at 1pm and May 27, 2021 at 10am EST to provide additional guidance in responding to this Call.
