This project aims to enable and enhance civil society organizations’ contribution to the protection and civil empowerment of 255,000 female garment workers and their communities in the Northern and Western Provinces of Sri Lanka for a period of 36 months. This will be achieved through strengthening the capacity of partner organizations; improving GBV support services through referral systems and peer networks; and empowering women to engage in national advocacy campaign for widespread awareness. The action will ultimately contribute to an empowered civil society for female garment workers.
