Peacebuilding Fund
Start Date *: 15 Jan 2013
PBF Immediate Response
End Date*: 31 Dec 2015
Country: Uganda Project Status: Financially Closed
  Participating Organization:   Multiple

Project Description:

This joint programme will address the core issues of protection, with a focus on the protection of women and children from all forms of violence, especially gender based violence and protection from all forms of harm and abuse for children. By strengthening the protection systems and improving access to stronger response services to gender based violence, the project will contribute to facilitating an enabling environment for women’s participation in peacebuilding initiatives and decision making processes. This intervention is premised on the peacebuilding cornerstone that requires meaningful involvement and participation of often marginalised groups such as women, in the peacebuilding process as a prerequisite for democracy and sustainable development. By strengthening the systems for child protection and improving facilitating children’s access to these services, this project will mitigate the impact of armed conflict on children, as well as launch strategic interventions that directly address children’s vulnerability to violence. Again this intervention lays the foundations for sustained peace, while reinforcing overall peace-building and violence mitigation efforts in the Acholi sub-region.
