The project addressed the capacity deficit caused by the departure of 17,135 officials and other social services workers providing critical services to the population. The project initiated a strategy of holistic support through three schemes:
- The establishment of integrated service centres offered an integrated package of medical, psychosocial, economic, legal and judiciary services for GBV survivors.
- The establishment of income-generating projects for women’s associations where GBV victims were encouraged to join, empowering them economically and limiting the harms caused by isolation and social stigma.
- Training six nongovernmental partner organizations (AWECO; l’Organisation Nationale pour l’Enfant, la Femme et la Famille; l’Organisation pour le Développement des Activités des Femmes; Cases; Horizon Vert; and Organisation pour les Droits et la Solidarité en Afrique) and equipping them to respond effectively to GBV through prevention, attention and the reintegration of GBV survivors
