Summary of publication
This report provides details on the Vanuatu Women's Centre (VWC) plan for year 4, July 2015 – June 2016. It also provides a brief update on program progress since Progress Report 3 (prepared in December 2014).
Key outcomes VWC plans to achieve over year 4 include:
- More effective action to prevent and respond to violence against women by partner agencies in key sectors, based on an understanding of the causes and consequences of VAWC and knowledge of the law.
- Building the skills of a core senior team of VWC staff to organise and facilitate 3-5 day community awareness workshops, including with men (following a training of trainers to be held on workshops with men in November), to enable VWC to respond to the increasing number of requests with high-quality delivery of key messages that are effective at challenging and changing attitudes, knowledge and behaviours.
- Strengthening CAVAWs by focusing on the quality of their community awareness work, their management and commitment, and their long-term sustainability.
