EVE Organization and the SWISS Agency for Development

 

EVE Organization and the SWISS Agency for Development and Cooperation launches community awareness on  SGBV and economically supports survivors in Central Euatoria state -  South Sudan

 

As part of addressing sexual and gender based violence in South Sudan, EVE Organization in partnership with the SWISS Agency for Development and Cooperation launched a pilot project in Central Equatoria start to engage the community through strategic and innovative preventive and protective measures to address SGBV and set the ground for future expansion.

 

Since the situation is deeply embedded in cultural and customary practices; and aggravated by lack of empowerment and economic independence of women, the approach used in implementing this project is a holistic one and covered the following :

 

1. Awareness raising on the negative impact of SGBV on women and girls, addressing attitude change within the community, involving men in addressing issues of SGBV,

 

2. Training community volunteers to provide psychosocial support and engage the community on SGBV issues through dialogue,

 

3. Construction of a safe space for survivors to seek support

 

4.  And provision of financial startup capital for survivors of violence to start income generating activities to improve on their livelihood.

 

The project runs from November 2015 through June 2016. Follow us for more updates on the outcome of this project.
