This sub-project aims to improve the social and legal environment in the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) in Mali. The Alternative pour le Développement et l’Environnement au Sahel (ADE-SAHEL) will organize a series of public sensitization events on the fight against and prevention of GBV and female genital mutilation, as well as conferences and inter-community dialogues with local cultural and religious leaders, to engage communities in the change of harmful behaviours and formalize commitments by local leaders to safeguard the rights of women and girls. The implementing partner will also deliver a series of training sessions on gender equality, women’s rights, access to justice and referral systems to local councillors, women’s organizations and actors of the criminal justice chain. Furthermore, in order to enhance access to justice and care services for the victims of violence, ADE-SAHEL will develop information, education and communication materials to inform and provide orientation to GBV survivors; set up and support the development of an action plan for the GBV monitoring and prevention committees, and identify and provide health care and economic support to GBV survivors to facilitate socio-economic reintegration.
