State Response to End Violence against Women: Legislative and Policy


Reform Implementation Programme
Ministry of Social Development and Housing
United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women
United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women
(UN Women)
Three and a half (3 ) years from November 1, 2011 to April 30, 2015

1.1 Current Project Implementation Status with the Timeframe to Complete the Project
Project activities have been completed under this project and a No-Cost Extension was granted by the
Funding Partners up to April 30, 2015 to fulfill evaluation requirements.
Description of the Specific Forms of Violence Addressed by the Project:
Given the national scope of this project, women and girls of different ages were the primary beneficiaries of
the initiatives to address four main forms of violence against women: intimate partner violence; marital rape;
sexual abuse; and sexual harassment. These are all forms of gender-based violence that women and girls face
differently at various stages of their lifetime.
Main Objectives of the Project:
To provide an effective multi-disciplinary response that builds public confidence and serves as a
deterrent to perpetrators and potential perpetrators of violence against women
To develop the capacity of major stakeholders in the application of the laws and policies
To foster systemic and sustainable institutional changes in response mechanisms
To engender a well-informed general public with knowledge of the relevant laws, national policies,
rights and mechanisms
To reduce the cultural tolerance of violence against women
To maintain an effective stakeholder support network and communication
Description of Targeted Primary and Secondary Beneficiaries:
The project targeted women and girls based on their vulnerability to various forms of VAW. During
childhood, sexual abuse is the predominant risk. Adolescents are exposed to sexual abuse, sexual harassment
and dating violence. Young and mature women, however, experience all of the listed forms.
Girls, 0 9 years old but particularly 5 9 years, were expected to benefit as the public sensitization and
awareness about sexual violence against girls was expected to result in increased reporting of child sexual
abuse being brought to the attention of the Child Protection Authority. Further, it is expected that in time,
there would be reduced incidents of child sexual abuse due to stricter enforcement of laws and punitive
measures, a strategic element that can deter potential offenders. Adolescents, 10 19 years old, would be the
main beneficiaries of the activities aimed at ending child sexual abuse, promoting safe domestic relationships
and recognizing early signs of abusive conduct, including dating violence.
1

Young women (20 24 years old), adult women (25 69 years) and elderly women (60 years and above)
were expected to benefit from actions to deal with all of the forms of violence being addressed. In addition, as
parents and guardians of children who are abused, it is anticipated that they would be better able to act to
protect their children with the enhancement of the mechanisms and services.
There was an expectation that through messaging of human rights and gender equality, the Ministry will
realize their intended goal of reduced societal tolerance for violence against women and girls, which should
further foster an equitable society for girls and women of all ages to live.
Many secondary beneficiaries were expected to benefit from project activities, as a result of implementation
of services for the primary beneficiaries. Among them, the ones who received the most direct benefits due to
the significance of the services they provide in relation to the implementation of the laws and policies were
the Royal Grenada Police Force, Ministry of Social Development, Central Statistical Office, Judicial officers,
social workers, Child Protection Authority, Cedars Home for Abused Women and their Children, Legal Aid
and Counseling Clinic and Grenada National Organization of Women.
Of that group, LACC and GNOW were co-implementing partners with the MoSD, the Implementing Agency.
These entities and groups, especially the MoSD, LACC and GNOW, benefitted from capacity building
through training and the expansion, clarification and development of their services. The RGPF benefitted
from training and the Central Statistical Office was expected to enhance its capacity through the development
and implementation of GBV data collection strategy.
The Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, nongovernmental organizations, community based organizations, faith-based organizations and educational
institutions were also Secondary Beneficiaries. They had varying roles in mandatory reporting of child abuse,
being first responders to individual cases of VAW, assisting in identifying victims and influencing cultural
beliefs, including the ability of their Networks to interface with and provide various services to communities
and other segments of the population. The main benefit for this group of secondary beneficiaries was
participation in training activities, followed by their participation in organizing specific community activities.
They were also equipped with certain tools, manuals and IEC materials for use in their work.
Other secondary beneficiaries included individuals: men and boys, media workers, parliamentarians and
private sector employers. Their roles were the application of the new laws, policies and information in their
lives and work. They were expected to benefit by the development of a keen awareness of the new legislation
and policies, formation of a better appreciation of the human rights and gender equality platform, and
alteration of beliefs, practices and attitudes to ones that facilitates compliance with the laws and policies.
The Grenada Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire (CWIQ) Report (2005) indicates that persons in rural
households, especially the rural poor, have reduced access to police stations, health centers, and other
services. That was another factor which informed the identification of beneficiaries. As a result, effort was
placed on mechanisms that facilitated their access to information about existing services. By involving these
secondary beneficiaries, there was the improved possibility of primary beneficiaries in the rural communities
receiving frequent and accurate information.
1.2 Strategy and Theory of Change:
Project Goal: Women and girls in Grenada have improved access to comprehensive systematic services that
are embodied in the laws and protocols on gender-based violence

The project used three strategies to achieve the desired changes, namely:
i.
ii.
iii.

Capacity Development
Prevention
Strengthening Response Mechanisms by key sectors

In general, these strategies were expected to result in more effective implementation of laws and policies and
improve two factors that help protect women and girls from gender-based violence, namely quality response
services and socio-cultural norms that promote human rights and gender equality.

1.3 Geographic Context


4

Given the broad-based nature of this project and its national reach, this project was implemented for the
benefit of women and girls of different socio-economic levels in both rural and urban communities. The target
was achievable as Grenada, a Small Island Developing State, is comprised of only 133 square miles. The
State is made up of three populated islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Grenada, the
mainland, has six parishes and five towns, but only the town of St. George, the capital, is considered as an
urban community. Grenada has a population estimated at just over one hundred and ten thousand (110,000)
people, 50% being female.

1.5 Key Partners Involved in the Project


The Legal Aid and Counseling Clinic (LACC): is a non-profit entity of the non-governmental organization,
Grenada Community Development Agency (GRENCODA). LACC is a multidisciplinary clinic, which offers
a wide range of services, including legal representation, public education, advocacy, legal research and
psychological counseling. The clinic, which has been in existence since 1987, is the only service provider of
its kind in Grenada.
The Grenada National Organization of Women (GNOW): is the national umbrella non-governmental
organization for womens groups and other groups with womens committees or arms. It has also been at the
forefront of working directly with women and men, particularly at public sensitization and training on issues
affecting women, and lobbying for gender equality in all aspects of society.

2. PURPOSE OF THE EVALUATION


2.1 Why the Evaluation Needs to Be Done
This is a mandatory final project evaluation required by the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women.
The impact of the project will be evaluated during the last quarter by an external evaluator based on the level
of attainment of each of the key results identified in the three main components. By capturing information and
monitoring both process and progress on each main activity and result, the MoSD will be able to identify and
document emerging good practices. The MoSD will share its activities and results with other territories in the
OECS, as they, too, are partners in the OECS Domestic Violence and Family Law Reform Project, one of the
processes that inspired this project.
5

The evaluation will be done to determine if the project has met its intended goal. Analysis will be done to
determine the level of success based on the intended results and the actual results. Elements like project goal,
outputs, outcomes impact, performance indicators and the set targets at all level during project design will
form the basis of the analysis.
The key results will be measured based on the following:
1. Adequate multi-sectoral response mechanisms for effective implementation of the laws and policies
at the national level
2. Access to available services at the community level
3. Socio-cultural change to reduce tolerance for VAW at the individual and community levels
Key questions to be answered:
1. To what extent were the key project messages to the public, contents of training materials/sessions
and responses by professionals in keeping with human rights and gender equality principles?
2. How have the services and messages responded to traditional and current gendered realities and
inspired positive change?
3. In what ways did the project activities result in intended outputs and outcomes and how did these
achieve the intended results for both primary and secondary beneficiaries?
4. What is the level of social-cultural and institutional change that occurred as a direct result of the
project?
5. What are the gaps to be met in relation to prevention of and response to gender-based violence
(GBV)?
6. What sustainability measures are in place to ensure continuity?
7. What recommendations are offered for strengthening the implementation mechanism for projects of
this nature?
2.2 How the Evaluation Results Will be Used, by Whom and When
The results will be used to inform further policy, advocate budgetary allocations from the Ministry of Finance
and making decisions on up-scaling results or initiating new activities. The findings on the process will also
inform actions to be taken on other social phenomena that have to be addressed.
2.3 What Decisions will be Taken After the Evaluation is Completed
The evaluation report will be shared with all key stakeholders
It will be used to inform Ministry policy and programming
