In response to increasing violations against minorities and vulnerable groups, CFJ undertakes the Gender Justice project to engage the local and international human rights community in efforts to reduce gender-related violations within our areas of work.
The project assesses and highlights the implications of gender-related issues, including those affecting women, men, girls, boys, LGBTQ+ individuals, etc., in planned actions by local authorities.
This involves documenting local policies, patterns of violations, and actions that either comply with or contradict international laws and human rights principles. The key outputs consist of sharing relevant information that underscores the current situation, drawing from credible collected data with UN and African mechanisms. Additionally, the project focuses on capacity-building and knowledge sharing with gender human rights defenders to maximize their effectiveness and impact.
