Women and children in Cameroon experience sexist discrimination and sexual violence on a daily basis. In a first phase of the project, an awareness of this phenomenon is to be raised within the population, among authorities and other decision-makers. However, these are still favored by several factors on the legal and socio-cultural level:
Also, affected children do not receive the necessary support, as there is a lack of offers of adequate and coordinated care.
Children, who are at risk of becoming or who have become victims of sexist discrimination and sexual violence are supported in realizing their rights and their rehabilitation by their social communities. They are also supported 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/ Kinderrechte Afrika e. V.
