This project aims at educating and raising awareness on gender equality to reduce incidences of gender based violence. Botswana subscribed to the Millennium Development Goals, which for this particular context include the Promotion of Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (Goal 3).
Children and youth in Botswana face the risk of a particularly insidious and destructive type of human rights violation, child sexual abuse (CSA), due to their unique socio-economic, cultural, traditional and developmental circumstances, and their physical and mental immaturity.
This project aims to increase and deepen civil society organisations' engagement in human rights and democracy in Botswana and to channel this engagement into concrete action. Five designated rural communities benefit from an enabling environment where the rights of all its people including populations most at risk (LGBTI, women and children) are protected and respected without prejudice and where services and justice are accessible to all.
