Gender Justice & Protection Project

Violence Against Women (VAW) is pervasive across class, religion, ethnicity and urban/rural divide in Pakistan. Violence and the threat of it contribute to the low social indicators for women’s development in the country. The Gender Justice and Protection Project (GJP) is a key initiative of UNDP’s Gender Support Program funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and implemented by United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The five year project has been initiated to contribute to sustainable reduction in violence against women (VAW) in accordance with the government’s policy commitments. The project has established a fund to support promising initiatives from the Government and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to combat the prevalence of violence, abuse, discrimination and social exclusion against women.
