Eligibility for this award is restricted to Mexican Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Please see Section C for eligibility requirements. The Femicides: Prevention and Response (F-PAR) Activity seeks to increase civil society (CSO) participation to support prevention activities of gender-based violence against women, to strengthen CSO’s litigation skills to advocate before justice sector institutions, as well as to monitor justice sector performance in preventing and responding to femicide cases.
