When you enter the site you will see in that you there are programming modules for GBV work related to Adolescents & Youth, Campaigns, Conflict, Education, Health, Justice, Legislation, Men & Boys, Policy & Budget Cycles, Prevention, Safe Cities,
and Security – Military and Police.
Unfortunately, right now the only links you can actually click on are Legislation, Men & Boys, and Safe Cities. They are hoping to make the site fully functional in a few months. HOWEVER, on the right-hand side, where “TOOLS” is located, enter a search term, and you can find virtually any and every document from a credible source on anything related to that term. Think of it as a Google for Violence Against Women. Note that you can refine your search by Language (documents available in 60 languages!), Subject, Region and Category. Subjects cover everything from Dowry Abuse, FGM, school-related GBV, working with Parliamentarians, advocacy, etc. – you can click on all the fields necessary. And in your categories section you will find protocols, indicators, survey assessments, evaluations, minimum standards, training curriculums, audio materials for training, etc. It is really a brilliant tool – please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the site and enter some search terms to test what you come up with.”
