This sub-project aimed to increase knowledge among the elderly on how to exercise their legitimate rights to prevent domestic violence (DV) and to restore their rights in the event of becoming a victim of any form of violence. The Mongolian Association of Elderly People (MAEP) delivered a series of training sessions to social workers on strengthening the provision of legal aid to the elderly in cases of DV, developed a database of consultants for the provision of legal services and raised awareness on the available legal and social services among local communities in Ulaanbaatar city and Dakhan province. Finally, the MAEP supported the establishment of a One-Stop Service Centre to provide elderly-friendly legal and social services to local elders and their family members.
