Enabling Vulnerable People
However, the biggest challenge is not about service delivery, but the way in which our society thinks and acts – especially towards women and children. We cannot focus on improving the State and non-government machinery to respond to the effects of domestic and sexual violence, without seeking ways to stop it.
This reality reinforces the critical role of civil society – not only as agents of Government or advocates for institutional change, but in building the agency of individuals and groups in society who challenge and shape our social norms.
What we support:
- Streamline of financing and administrative systems for income transfers from Government to non-profit organisations;
- Strengthen national network of paralegal support to non-government organisations;
- Use electronic tablets for social work case management;
- Design and implement prevention strategies for disability and gender-based violence and child abuse;
- Foster influential, purpose-driven networks of non-government organisations;
- Develop bottom-up local innovations in community provision of key services.
