The project is designed to address immediate Gender Based Violence (GBV) issues and empower women to take a stand against violence and
rebuild their lives.

The Tribal Districts of the Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Province span the region bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). They remain one of the most underdeveloped regions of Pakistan, enduring decades of marginalization, and economic deprivation.

Protection - sexual & gender based violence, and employment remain a critical issue related to both social and economic development, and to matters of stability and governance.

UN Women brings its technical expertise in gender equality and links with the global women’s movement to the UN Women Pakistan mission to strengthen the effectiveness, coordination, and quality of outputs of the UN mission on gender equality.

The strategy in Pakistan encompasses strengthening the capacity of government, non-governmental organizations and UN system to deliver on Pakistan’s national and international commitments to gender equality, protection and women’s empowerment by ensuring that voices of women and human rights-based approach is integrated fully in the development agenda of the country.
