Call for proposals-Sri Lanka-Delivery of capacity building training on social cohesion for CSOs

Submission deadline: 18 September 2020

This activity will empower target groups of women on entrepreneurial skills to support sustainable income generation, to relieve dependency and indebtedness, and enable resilience against re-victimisation by enabling them to establish sustainable, long term self-employment. It will further encourage women to play a key role on social cohesion and peacebuilding as evidence across the region establishes that women’s individual and collective roles in promoting peacebuilding extend beyond their family roles to civil society and religious settings where they can shape the decisions of community members to refrain from violent activities. In particular, it aims to address the specific limitations faced by vulnerable groups of women, including FHHs in accessing the necessary knowledge and information regarding markets and value addition of products, as well as access to financial resources.
