ABOUT GENDER RESOURCES:
GRI advances gender equality and women’s empowerment so that all people – women, men, boys, and girls – have equal abilities and opportunities to lead more fulfilling lives. We utilize innovative practices in adult education, communication technology, and results-based program management to achieve programs with tangible impacts for real people. GRI is a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) based in San Francisco, California.


PROJECT SUMMARY:
Bersama is a new 5-year, 7.4 million dollar, USAID initiative to address the problems of gender based violence in four provinces in Eastern Indonesia, namely, Papua, West Papua, Maluku, and North Maluku. The program will serve as the primary entry point for supporting partners to advocate for reduced acceptance of gender inequality and for increased government accountability for promotion and protection of citizen rights and the provision of basic services, especially services for survivors of violence. As violence against women constitutes the largest and most visible component of GBV, the Bersama project will focus primarily on VAW while leaving the door open to addressing other aspects of GBV.


Bersama seeks to contribute to the prevention and more effective response to GBV. The Bersama goal will be accomplished by achieving three lower-level objectives:
  1. Reduced acceptance of GBV and Gender Inequality through the establishment of norms that support non-violence and equity in relationships among women and men;
  2. Strengthen Government Capacity to provide basic services related to GBV;
  3. Increased voice for Bersama CSO subgrantees in the fight against GBV.
