To Prevent and Combat Gender-based Violence and Violence Against Children - The REC Programme02-Nov-2017
The deadline is fast approaching to apply for grants to prevent and combat gender-based violence and violence against children, and applicants are advised to submit their proposals soon.
The Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC) is designed to promote and protect specific individual rights and freedoms derived from European Union law.
REC promotes gender equality, rights which originate from citizenship of the EU, as well as children's rights and Roma inclusion; their funding is for projects that challenge all forms of discrimination and racism and fight violence against women, young people and children.
This Call for Proposals aims to prevent and combat gender-based violence and violence against children by funding targeted, practical projects, to make sure of the best results; which would then show a positive effect on the lives of beneficiaries.
REC asks that applications should show clear intentions and planning within the proposals; as well as show measures to maintain and monitor results after the end of funding.
Applicants should also describe the potential for scaling up the measure, should their proposals produce the expected results.
At the time of writing, the total budget for the Call is €12.7 million.
The deadline for applications is 14th November 2017.
