The fight against impunity

Prize-winning projects may focus on advocacy actions aimed at publicizing resources for combating impunity and training public and civil society actors; on actions for mobilization around reforms that are crucially important to the fight against impunity; on the accompaniment of victims as part of or in parallel with judicial proceedings; and on support for transitional justice mechanisms and the compilation of archives on violations of human rights.

    This is a very good opportunity for a NGO like mine which has been involved with poor and female headed households in coastal area of Bangladesh who remain forgotten and because they live near the sea oblivious of the dangers ahead but they have no place to go, already uprooted from their homes due to change in the climate and abandoned by their men who have left looking for a job and never returned. No body cares about them.
