The overall objective of the proposal is to contribute to strengthening the most vulnerable people of Guinea Bissau in reducing poverty and exclusion. The specific objective is to facilitate the process of inclusion and empowerment of women and people with disabilities, with particular focus on those victims of violence. The first result is to increase the access opportunities of women and people with disabilities to income-generating activities (AGR) through micro-credit and entrepreneurial activities supported by an incubator of micro-enterprises (start-ups). Considering the prevalence of agricultural activities in the area, the agro-ecological activities that have already given excellent results in the pilot phase will be expanded.The second expected result is linked to the capitalization of the social networks of the SAC (Community Alarm System) in the Gabu region. As part of the AID10953, project managed by AIFO, a sensitization campaign has been launched on gender violence, women's and people with disabilities rights through an institutional dialogue with the Federation of Associations for the Defence of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Guinea Bissau (FADPD / GB).This initiative will expand activities in the field of gender-based violence prevention and inclusion of disability by enhancing dialogue mechanisms, increasing the number of self-help groups. These activities will serve as a hub to involve beneficiaries and families, in a path of behaviour change already successfully applied in many African countries for women's empowerment and prevention of violence, especially domestic violence.The impact of the initiative is not limited to produce direct benefits for families, linked to the improvement of the economic condition of women and the reduction of domestic violence. In fact, through the involvement and support of traditional authorities, it is expected to induce in the community a spirit of emulation that determines the change of gender roles. The change will have a very important impact on young people, obstructing gender-based violence, towards building a resilient, productive and respectful community of rights and equal opportunities. read more close
