SEE THE RESULTS OF THE 16TH CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The 16th ELAS Social Investment Fund competition, in partnership with the Avon Institute and UN Women, aims to strengthen, through financial and technical support, groups of young and adult women working to combat violence against women in communities in Rio de Janeiro. The main focus will be on tackling the possible causes of this violence and the action takes place as a continuation of the "Live Tomorrow" Fund. This Avon initiative has already allocated R$1.5 million to 14 socio-cultural projects nominated by independent resellers. One of the significant results of the Viva o Amanhã Fund was the reduction from 44% to 13% in the number of men who committed some kind of physical violence against their partners in low-income communities in Rio de Janeiro.
The competition is based on the belief that work to promote and act against violence, involving women and young people, allows new attitudes to be redefined, positively influencing gender equality, human respect and the formation of a culture of peace.
Objectives of the competition:
To strengthen institutionally, through financial support and training, groups or organizations of women activists, young people and adults, who develop initiatives focused on the issue of violence against women in pacified and/or low-income communities in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro (Greater Rio).
Lines of support/focus of the proposals:
The response to violence against women needs to be seen more broadly and, for this reason, projects will be evaluated that focus on the causes of violence and use a variety of strategies to combat it. Projects/proposals focusing on the following themes will therefore be evaluated:
Social mobilization: promoting informative and preventive actions against domestic violence against women; fostering dialogue and broadening understanding about domestic violence and the Maria da Penha Law; carrying out training activities and disseminating women's rights to a life without violence; activities that promote an environment of harmony between the sexes and that call on men to fight for an end to violence against women*.
