Call for Proposals from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), including NGOs for small grants to establish and operate Justice and Confidence Centers (JCCs)
Deadline for proposal submission: Monday 21st January 2019
The United Nations Development Programme South Sudan (UNDP) Support to Access to Justice and Rule of Law Project aims to contribute to national priorities as articulated in the South Sudan Development Plan (SSDP) Conflict Prevention & Security Pillar. The specific Rule of Law Sector Objective is “to strengthen the Rule of Law in South Sudan by enforcing and maintaining law and order, providing equitable access to justice and a functioning criminal justice system, increasing security in communities, and promoting and protecting human rights for all.” UNDP’s strategy in promoting rule of law is twofold. First, providing support to the priorities of the rule of law institutions (Judiciary, Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Police and Prisons) as articulated in their institutional Strategic and/or Action plans. Second, promoting access to justice by linking the rule of law institutions with community and civil society initiatives.
UNDP’s Access to Justice and Rule of Law Project provides linkages between justice providers and communities through various activities including awareness raising on human rights, constitutional protection, gender based violence and access to legal redress; advocacy on legal and policy reform; and support to legal aid initiatives and capacity building of civil society. This includes providing support for the establishment of Justice and Confidence Centers (JCCs).
The JCCs are facilities established by NGOs/CSOs/CBOs in South Sudan to provide a variety of information services to clients, including the provision of legal, human rights information, advocacy, mediation and reconciliation services. The centers also provide services including visitations to prison inmates and operationalizing gender desks in police stations. The activities and operations of JCCs will be implemented by grant holders (NGOs/CSOs/CBOs) secured through this call for proposals.�
