The project “Precious Lives”, implemented by the Italian NGO COSPE in collaboration with two well-known afghan NGOs (HAWCA and OPAWC), consists of three main components: 1) Setting up a system of protection and defense of women victims of violence in coordination with the institutions. Two Centers of Legal Assistance and socio-psychological (CAL) for women have been opened in Kabul and Herat, located in the central districts, more accessible to victims and near the faculty (modern law and shari'a) and the court. The project will also provide support to the Shelter in Kabul run by HAWCA, and will work with the existing coordination mechanisms at national and provincial levels to promote the need to create a mechanism, shared as widely as possible, for the inter-institutional communication. 2) The mobilization of law students and the activation of grassroots communities for the elimination of violence against women. 3) The creation of a Centre for Women active as public space to facilitate the processes of self-organization among women for their own social and economic empowerment, protection and defense of their rights. read more close
