UN Women: Promoting the right of women to access specialist support services available for women survivors of violence and discrimination in Albania

Deadline: 17 September 2017

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) is inviting civil society organizations (CSOs) or CSOs networks working on gender equality and ending violence against women, as well as community-based organizations working with Roma or other disadvantaged women to submit proposals that aim at promoting the right of women to receive information about general and specialist support services available for women that are victims of violence and discrimination as well as their right to access these services, in particular focusing on Roma women and women from other disadvantaged groups.

The specific project under this proposal contributes to the programme’s Specific Objective 3: “To empower women and girls, including those from disadvantaged groups, who have experienced violence and discrimination to advocate for, and use available, accessible and good quality services”.
