Requests for proposals for CARA 

Posted in Stories on 04 October 2021

The Interim Steering Committee on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide is tasked with the responsibility to coordinate the implementation of the Emergency Response Action Plan (ERAP). The Department of Social Development (DSD) as a lead department for the Victim Empowerment Programme (VEP) through ERAP has identified strengthening of CSOs that provide services to survivors and victims of gender based violence as one of the interventions to be implemented through the Programme.

To that end, the Department has made funding available for capacity building and support to CSOs. The DSD is further responsible for reporting on implementation progress of the VEP to the Integrated Justice System Development Committee (IJS DevCom), which is the Sub-committee of the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster (JCPS). 

The implementation approach is for DSD to transfer the VEP funds to the National Development Agency (NDA) to manage and distribute to CSOs through the Criminal Asset Recovery Account (CARA).

The NDA in partnership with DSD call on CSOs that implement VEP to submit proposals in response to Gender Based Violence and Femicide.
