Project activities will focus on gender sensitivity training for men and boys, strengthen civil society organization (CSO) networks and victim support, and support civil society training for local government agencies and service providers that support GBV survivors. GBV ranges from intimate partner violence to gender-based killing of women and girls, significantly hindering the ability of individuals to participate fully in society and contribute to their families and communities.

Address the root causes of GBV in the Caribbean through a series of community-level small grants. The prime award recipient will manage the awards process and create an enabling environment for civil society organizations already engaged in GBV prevention activities to:
- further engage with local communities through education and training; or
- strengthen linkages with local governments that are also engaged as service providers to women GBV survivors.

In order to fulfill the goal of addressing the root causes of GBV, project objectives will be implemented either by the prime grantee or the selected small grantees (hereafter “the subrecipients”) individually, or both together, and are listed by area of responsibility. The project objectives will be implemented in the following manner:
- Objective 1: The prime award recipient will develop, compete, and effectively manage the Caribbean GBV small grants program.
- Objective 2: The prime grantee will create a training curriculum (in Spanish, French, and English) and provide ongoing in-person training (two summits/workshops), and at least quarterly webinars for the subrecipients for GBV prevention capacity building purposes. The prime grantee will lead training for the subrecipients and should include technical experts and curriculum that includes topics both on GBV prevention and best practices for GBV services provided by both CSOs and local or municipal governments.
- Objective 3: The subrecipients will be responsible for developing simple stakeholder maps or performing gap analyses to set the baseline data of individual local community GBV prevention and survivor services in the communities where activities will take place.
- Objective 4: The subrecipients can design projects that address the root causes of GBV by providing intervention activities aimed at youth to address socio-cultural attitudes that lead to GBV.
- Objective 5: The subrecipients can design projects that will strengthen CSO and local governments’ abilities to improve access to GBV survivor services and networks by working with and providing training to local government agencies that already participate in the GBV prevention sphere. WHA is particularly seeking subawards that improve safety networks for historically marginalized populations, including Dominicans of Haitian descent, migrants, and refugees, including in rural areas.
- Objective 6: Both the prime grantee and subrecipients should consider the implications of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on project activities and create contingency plans to include virtual activities, and submit project activities that address GBV issues that result from COVID-19 and emergency GBV care.
