Spotlight Initiative Guyana - Call for Proposals For A Civil Society Organisation (CFP BRB30/CFP 2021/14)

Date: Thursday, August 12, 2021

The UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) Caribbean is seeking to partner with a Civil Society Organizations (CSO) to train and mentor/support champions, particularly faith-based leaders, for their visible advocacy role on Family Violence at the national level and working with other CSOs at community level.  It is expected that the design and institutionalization of advocacy campaigns targeting faith-based leaders on harmful social norms, gender stereotyping, violent masculinities and men’s violence towards women and girls involving survivors as champions and reformed perpetrators within all Spotlight Regions particularly Regions 1 and 7 will lead to changes in gender inequitable social norms, attitudes, behaviours and harmful practices at the community and individual levels to prevent violence against women and girls. The output and associated output indicator under this intervention are as follows:

Indicator 3.3.2 Number of relevant non-state institutions that have developed and/or strengthened strategies/policies on ending VAWG and promoting gender-equitable norms, attitudes and behaviours and women and girls’ rights, including those groups facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, in line with international HR standards, within the last year.

Target: At least 10 Faith-based Institutions

The resources available under the Spotlight Project to train and mentor/support champions, particularly faith-based leaders, for their visible advocacy role on Family Violence at the national level and working with other CSOs at community level (1 CSO at USD 25,000 equivalent).
