Justice and Healing

Justice and Healing for Survivors of Gender-Based Violence

This EU-funded initiative sought to integrate principles of healing based on the victim’s perspective into the judicial system, especially by sensitizing lawyers, prosecutors, paralegals, judges and duty-bearers in all levels, as well as stakeholders in the communities.

The Project Team is conducting FGDs and RTDs, barangay forums in strategic locations in the three major regions, paralegal training for community service providers, court watch and mentoring program for handling VAW cases. Primers on VAWC, trafficking, rape, sexual harassment and the Magna Carta of Women were also designed and distributed to different barangays.
