Spotlight Initiative Project through UNDP

The Spotlight Initiative is a global, multi-year partnership between the European Union and the United Nations to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls. The Spotlight Initiative responds to all forms of violence against women and girls, with a particular focus on sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices. The Initiative is so named as it brings focused attention to this issue, moving it into the spotlight and placing it at the center of efforts to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment.
