To achieve this objective JRUP will implement a grants program that is locally-led and uses grants to support Uzbek NGOs to embark on citizen engagement and awareness campaigns. The organization’s work may include strengthening oversight and monitoring of delivery of justice at the local level, including outside Tashkent. Tt DPK will give special attention under the grants program to organizations that provide gender equality and serve vulnerable populations, such as victims of violence, individuals with low income, persons with disabilities, migrants, orphans, among others.

Grants activities may include:

  • Providing legal aid, including mobile legal aid clinics to rural populations and legal support to victims of violence (including domestic violence), persons with disabilities, vulnerable groups and individuals;
  • Training journalists to improve reporting on legal reforms, court cases, preparing subjects on gender-sensitive materials aimed at overcoming stereotypes in the society;
  • Training programs for legal professionals that serve vulnerable populations;
  • Training programs aimed at improving the quality of legal assistance including alternate dispute resolution;
  • Public awareness campaigns on new laws and alternate dispute resolution;
  • Non-government organization oversight and monitoring of legal reforms;
  • Other innovative and cost-effective programs to address priority rule of law related challenges and to promote access to justice for vulnerable populations including gender equality; or
  • Technical capacity building programs to support new and emerging civil society organizations and community groups in the rule of law sectors, exclusively in connection with activities in the above categories that support the overall program goals.
