Pilot Study Of Men Involvement For Empowerment Of Women Commenced
With this study, which we have initiated as a component of the Child Protection Project on 15 October 2018, we aim to ensure that Syrian refugee men living in Istanbul are supportive in their efforts to strengthen the Syrian women and girls.
We will carry out this process with the information module we will prepare on gender-based violence and we will continue this process with the feedback and support we receive from our Strategy Consultants, Consultant Group and the Voluntary Syrian Men Group. In the preparation of the module, we will realize our works in a bilingual way by taking the cultural values and social structures of the Syrian society into consideration.
At the end of our pilot application, which will end on December 31, 2018, we will develop a strategy document aimed at involvement of men for empowerment of women and mitigation of gender-based violence. We aim to continue and mainstream this study in 2019 in light of the experience and gains we have acquired during this pilot implementation process.
The first meeting of our consultant group with the agenda of how to create more effective information and messages on the prevention of violence against women was held on November 13th with the participation of representatives from organizations working with refugees.
