ICAAD Goes to Grenada
ICAAD meeting with Sweetwater Foundation
Our work tackling gender-based violence has officially kicked off in Grenada!
ICAAD Co-Founders Jaspreet Singh and Hansdeep Singh recently visited the country as consultants for UN Women's Spotlight Initiative. The trip included conducting an assessment of gaps in service delivery for domestic violence and sexual offense survivors, as part of our work supporting women and girls in the Caribbean.
In Grenada, ICAAD met with members of the justice sector as well as leading civil society organizations and foundations working to tackle gender-based violence. Over the coming months, we will continue to deepen connections with key stakeholders as we work together to identify where gaps in access to justice for women, girls and the LGBTQ+ community exist – and how those gaps can be addressed.
This visit was part of the expansion of our gender justice project in the Caribbean, after starting similar work in Jamaica and Barbados. Through our engagement in the region thus far, we have seen that there are numerous barriers to justice for victim/survivors of domestic and sexual violence – ranging from lack of victim anonymity to difficulties seeking protection orders.
We will continue to leverage data insights alongside legal, advocacy and policy support as we work with partners in Grenada and the region to combat gender-based violence.
Your support has directly helped us scale this project to benefit millions of women and girls – thank you!
