From January 2015 to December 2016, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women provided funding to the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia (ONIC) for its project “Indigenous Women, Violence and Access to Justice”. The final evaluation found the initiative was very successful. An “observatory” set up to document cases of gender-based violence increased the visibility of this form of violence, and indigenous women were trained in ways to best support members of their community who have experienced gender-based violence through a programme developed to suit their culture and beliefs.
The Belize government’s Women’s Department led the project “Implementation of National Gender-based Violence Plan of Action” with support from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. The final evaluation showed that training sessions considerably improved the ability of service providers to deliver sensitive services to women, and that permanent advocacy and education programmes are key to tackling gender-based violence.
