Increasing access to the justice system for vulnerable groups, including women, is one of GOJUST II’s specific results. To achieve this, GOJUST II has established a grant facility managed by UNOPS in collaboration with the British Council’s Technical Assistance Team. GOJUST II will seek to empower women, poor and people living in vulnerable situations to recognize their grievances and problems as legal issues and to seek effective remedies for disputes. For people to be able to seek redress, they must know their rights and understand the different pathways for seeking justice. There also must be sufficient legal assistance services accessible to them, i.e., adapted to their needs and circumstances.
To this end the project will work with media, legal service civil society organizations (CSOs) representing the people/issues we aim to support, paralegals and other facilitators to create legal and rights awareness and provide direct legal services on issues involving land rights, rights of women, including victims of sexual and gender-based violence (GBV), rights of indigenous peoples, children, youth, prisoners, those with disabilities and LGBTI people.
Philippine based not for profit organizations, such as women’s organizations, grassroots organizations, non-governmental organizations, legal service organizations, schools and research institutions registered in the Philippines, may apply.
Applicants must have at least three years’ experience in the implementation of rights- based development projects that help the plight of the poor and the disadvantaged.
Actions must take place in Philippines.
The grant period would be for a minimum period of 12 months and a maximum of twenty four (24) months, including a two-month inception phase. The maximum grant amount for a CSO applicant would be Four Million Philippine Pesos (Php4M). If the proposal is for one year or more, the budget should not exceed Two Million Philippine pesos (Php2M) per year. For consortiums, the maximum grant amount would be Seven Million Philippine pesos (Php7M) for 24 months or 2 years, irrespective of the number of consortium partners.
Deadline for submission of the application documents is up to 23:59 of December 2, 2022.
