Final Evaluation: Ensuring Access to Reproductive Healthcare for Survivors of Sexual Violence in Honduras
The Center for Reproductive Rights received a grant from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women for its three-year project “Ensuring Access to Reproductive Healthcare for Survivors of Sexual Violence in Honduras”. The project aimed to protect the health and well-being of survivors of sexual violence and lead a multi-faceted legal advocacy campaign. The final evaluation found that despite its broad goals, the project successfully engaged all institutions and stakeholders that provide strategies to improve access to sexual and reproductive health services for women and girls, particularly survivors of sexual violence.
The project “Preventing Violence through Creating Safer Schools” was implemented in Guyana by Help & Shelter between January 2016 and January 2019 with financial support from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women.

Secondary school students trained during the project better understood gender-based violence and gained knowledge of laws related to gender-based violence, domestic violence and children’s rights.

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.
