The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) seeks applications from qualified organizations to fund an activity entitled Femicides - Prevention and Response.
Eligibility for this award is restricted to Mexican Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s).
Please see Section
C for eligibility requirements.
Prevention of and an effective state response to femicides are essential elements to guarantee access to a life without violence for women.
Currently, the ability of many government institutions to prevent and respond to femicides is limited.
There are an array of reasons for this.
Inter-institutional coordination is uneven; some institutions are weak and their internal procedures lacking; in many cases, protection orders are not properly implemented; Amber and Alba alerts are deficient; and femicide investigations and prosecutions are weak.
The aggregate of these issues, as well as others, limits the ability of the state to prevent and respond to femicides.
