This project has been launched to work towards the dream of easy, quick and effective access to justice for women and children facing violence.

The project aims to assess and enhance women survivors of violence situations and conditions by positively improving behaviors and eliminating patriarchal mindsets among justice sector actors while focusing on building their capacities in dealing with criminal cases of violence against women (domestic violence, sexual abuse, financial abuse, harassment, human trafficking, sexual exploitation and cyber violence etc.).

The project is achieving its aims by building capacities 1000 of judges, court staff, prosecutors, lawyers and other relevant justice sector actors to handle VAW cases. District wise training workshops will be organized for this purpose.
