Brief Description

The Pacific Partnership to End Violence against Women and Girls (PPEVAWG) brings together governments, civil society organisations, communities and other partners to promote gender equality, prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG), and increase access to quality response services for survivors. The programme is funded primarily by the European Union (EU) with targeted support from the Australian Government. The implementing partners are UN Women, the Pacific Community (SPC) and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS). The Pacific Partnership runs from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2021. The SPC, led by its Regional Rights Resource Team (RRRT) working in collaboration with the Educational Quality and Assessment Programme (EQAP) and the Social Development Programme (SDP), is responsible for the implementation of Outcome 1: Enhanced formal and informal education on gender equality and prevention of violence against women and girls. 

The aim is to contribute towards shaping children and youth’s notions and awareness of human rights and responsibilities, gender equality, social inclusion and ending violence against women and girls in their communities primarily in three countries: Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands and Tuvalu. Activities under this Outcome should lead to the following: 
1. Educational curricula, standards, resources and programmes addressing human rights, gender equality and EVAWG are developed and integrated into formal and non-formal education. 
2. Individuals supported through formal and non-formal education are more aware of how to promote human rights, gender equality and EVAWG.
