Government agencies and advocacy groups working to end gender-based violence in Solomon Islands will now have the means to design effective and stronger projects to end violence against women – thanks to a regional toolkit that will be officially launched in Honiara tomorrow.
Titled “How to design projects to end violence against women and girls”, the toolkit is the first of its kind in the Pacific.
It was developed by UN Women through its Pacific Regional Ending Violence against Women Facility Fund, with funding from the Australian Government.
The UN Women says the toolkit is a step-by-step guide to every stage of the project cycle – this includes basic concepts such as gender, human rights and project design through to needs assessments, work plans, data collection, media outreach, stakeholder relationships and monitoring and evaluation techniques.
The toolkit also has group activities, tips, templates and online resources, as well as a list of potential funding sources.
The UN Women Solomon Islands will launch the toolkit at the National Auditorium in Honiara tomorrow morning.
