Tunisia supports the Inclusion of Vulnerable Communities
The IDMEJ project, in collaboration with Humanity & Inclusion (better known as Handicap International), aims to empower and protect victims of gender-based violence and people with disabilities in Tunisia, allowing them to exercise their rights by promoting social and institutional reforms that promote their inclusion.
The project's objectives :
• To improve the journey of victims of GBV, ensure universal access to rights and strengthen support services.
• Improve access to social protection systems for people with disabilities by deploying identification systems, effective and inclusive registration, and monitoring in accordance with international best practices.
• Through GBV prevention, awareness raising, and advocacy, promote a protective and inclusive legal environment and framework for GBV survivors and persons with disabilities.
