The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a project to strengthen the entire value chain of the justice system in El Salvador in response to gender-based violence (GBV). The purpose of this project is to decrease revictimization and reduce impunity through improved victims’ services with a comprehensive and holistic approach, aligned to local laws and international conventions.
Project Vision: This project intends to increase access to justice for women and vulnerable groups that have experienced GBV by improving the capacities of the justice sector and law enforcement institutions that provide victims’ services. The project aims to ensure basic standards for victim attention, reduce revictimization, and reduce impunity. It aligns with all five pillars of the administration’s root causes strategy, by creating economic opportunities for women (Pillar I); advancing the rule of law by ensuring access to justice (Pillar II); promoting respect for human rights (Pillar III); countering and preventing violence (Pillar IV); and combating sexual, gender-based, and domestic violence (Pillar V). It specifically advances objectives of the 2019 U.S. Strategy on Women, Peace, and Security, by working with partner country institutions to promote the protection of women and girls’ human rights and safety from violence, abuse, and exploitation, including by working with cooperating governments to hold perpetrators of sexual and gender-based violence accountable.
