Strengthening Inst. & Human Resources Capacities of Ministry of Social Solidarity

Background

UNDP works with the Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS) on supporting the implementation of the gender and social protection component of Takaful and Karama, while utilizing real lessons learned from the first phase of Takaful and Karama.

The socio-cultural empowerment package for families will target a number of socio-cultural issues including domestic violence, harmful traditional practices, and reproductive health issues.  The package will address issues such as: combating child marriage, combatting FGM, trafficking, gender and social inclusion (SDGs 1 and 5).
