THE GENDER BASED VIOLENCE FINANCING PROJECT

THE GENDER BASED VIOLENCE FINANCING PROJECT

 

The project is aimed at developing innovative ways for financing GBV prevention and mitigation programmes and services. Following a dialogue held in 2017 on financing of GBV initiatives, HiDSA commissioned a report on the Costing of Shelters for Abused Women. This had been identified as a gap, with most shelters unable to substantiate their requests for additional funding from the fiscus. A Costing report was produced and has been used to engage treasury and advocate additional resources for Shelters
