The UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) – Caribbean, seeks to partner with a Responsible Party (CSO) to support capacity development for civil society organisations on effective joint advocacy on GEWE and VAWG with parliament, and to support movement building and sustainability of the women’s movement and civil society through volunteerism and public sensitization across Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

The Grenada Spotlight Initiative will build on lessons learned from former and existing programmes with its partners, including CSOs, development agencies such as UN agencies, EU, and others to address bottlenecks hindering progress and to build on successes to ensure a successful and sustainable country programme achieving visible gains to End Violence Against Women and Girls (EVAWG) in Grenada.
