This Toolkit brings together information, resources and practical activities to help Pacific Islanders apply a gendered analysis to the issue of violence against women and to design and implement effective and sustainable projects. It can be used for new projects or to integrate a gender analysis and human rights based approach to existing projects aiming to end violence against women.
This toolkit was developed by UN Women’s Pacific Regional Ending Violence against Women Facility Fund (Pacific Fund) in response to requests by stakeholders for practical, user-friendly materials and resources that would help them design and implement successful projects to end violence against women and girls.
This Toolkit has been designed for individuals and groups that are actively working to end violence against women in their communities.
Some of the groups that will find this Toolkit useful include:
- national, provincial and local governments
- civil society organisations
- faith based organisations
- social workers/welfare officers
- health service providers
- community leaders
- women’s organisations
- foreign governments and donors
- policy makers
- youth groups and organisations
- legal practitioners
- sporting clubs.
The Toolkit can be used to support projects of all types and sizes, from small community level projects to complex multiyear initiatives. The information and activities in this Toolkit can be used on their own or together as a step-by-step guide to project design.
