Building on the results achieved during previous programming, this sub-project aims to enhance access to justice for sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) survivors among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in the Bukedi region of Uganda. The Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Alliance Uganda is conducting a series of awareness-raising activities on SGBV and its response system, including community dialogues, a media campaign and dissemination of information, education and communication materials, to foster conversations and an understanding of SGBV and available legal services. SRHR Alliance is further convening and attending a series of national and international information-sharing events on the focus area to support the sharing of best practices. Furthermore, the implementing partner is delivering a series of training sessions on paralegal skills and the Gender Transformative Approach to community response agents and women’s groups, and providing legal aid support to SGBV survivors among AGYW to increase the quality of the response by the formal and informal justice systems to SGBV cases.
