USAID call for proposals for Women’s Peace Campaign Project in Kenya

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Kenya is seeking applications from non-governmental, non-profit organizations to implement activities in support of the Women’s Peace Campaign Project to provide support for Gender Based Violence (GBV) awareness and prevention activities.

USAID/Kenya is seeking applications from qualified U.S. and non U.S. organizations and institutions, in the form of partnerships or consortia that include Kenya organizations, interested in providing the services described in this solicitation. This is full and open competition, under which any type of organization, large or small, commercial (for profit) firms, faith-based, and non-profit organizations in partnerships or consortia are eligible to compete.

The Women’s Peace Campaign Project is one component of the larger Women’s Justice and Empowerment Initiative. The goal of this project is to improve local and national women’s organization’s capacity to address violence against women and to create a grassroots-based network that will serve to prevent and mitigate conflict, especially in the lead up to the 2012 election. The objective of the Women’s Peace Campaign project is to engage women, of all socio-economic groups and in all counties, in a national effort to establish peace in their homes and communities.

This project aims to change societal acceptance that women will continually face violence, whether in their homes or due to politically motivated ethnic strife.  Activities will include men, remembering that meaningful change will not occur without men as men are the primary perpetrators of violence against women.  Therefore, project activities will purposefully engage men and women in order to affect change.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 25 January 2011. For more information, visit grants.gov and search by Funding Opportunity Number for “AID-623-11-000001-00.”
