Women and children in Cameroon experience sexist discrimination and sexual violence on a daily basis. In a first phase of the project, an awareness therefor was raised within the population, among authorities and other decision-makers. However, these phenomena are still favored by several factors on the legal and socio-cultural level:
Children, who are at risk of becoming or who have become victims of sexist discrimination and sexual violence gain access to their fundamental rights and are supported in their rehabilitation by their social communities. They are also protected by an adequate legal and institutional framework.
Project costs: about 540,800 €

It gives them true income perspectives and helps raising their self-esteem as well as their recognition in society. © Elisabeth Munsch
