UN Women plans to engage with civil society organizations to design and implement interventions under the SHAML project – Enhancing the protection and Re-integration of Furthest Left Behind Groups of Women and Girls Victims and Survivors of Violence in Palestine.
Within this framework, based on a thorough consultation with stakeholders, UN Women has developed Shaml project- Enhancing the protection and Re-integration of Furthest Left Behind Groups of Women and Girls Victims and Survivors of Violence in Palestine, to address gaps embedded in the system, attitudes and positions, and services pertaining to the rights of furthest left behind groups of women and girls victims and survivors of violence.
In broader terms, the furthest left behind groups of women and girls for this project are the seven groups of women and girls who are denied access to sheltering services as per the Cabinet’s decision of 2011 on Protection Centres for Women Victims of Violence: women who have committed crimes (misdemeanours and felonies) and are executing court sentences, women with physical and mental disabilities, substance abuse cases, women accused of prostitution, women or girls who have infectious diseases, women who form a threat to other women, and girls who are below the age of 18, in addition to elderly women particularly those with mental or physical disabilities.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 4-May-21.
