Deadline: 10 January 2020
UNWOMEN Thailand has issued a Call for Proposals (CfP) for a responsible partner (RP) to implement the UNWOMEN component of the Joint Programme with ILO called “Safe and Fair: Realizing the Rights of Women Migrant Workers Rights and opportunities in the ASEAN Region”.
UNWOMEN is seeking for innovative proposals from committed organizations that have extensive experience in the field of violence against women (VAW) service delivery, women’s labour migration and anti-human trafficking, particularly for enhancing quality service delivery and access for women migrant workers (WMWs), and capacities of peer-to-peer networks for community mobilization in preventing and responding VAW and human trafficking.
Safe and Fair works in close cooperation with governments and social partners to achieve three interlinking specific objectives:
- Specific objective 1: Women migrant workers are better protected by gender-sensitive labour migration governance frameworks;
- Specific objective 2: Women migrant workers are less vulnerable to violence and trafficking and benefit from coordinated responsive quality services; and
- Specific objective 3: Data, knowledge and attitudes on the rights and contributions of women migrant workers are improved.
The total grant is a maximum of 13,870,000 THB.
- Estimated start date: 1 April 2020
- End date: 30 September 2022
Programme Outcome and Outputs
Aligning to the Objective 2 and 3 of the Safe and Fair Project as discussed above, the engagement of a Responsible Party (RP) under this Call for Proposals (CfPs) will contribute to the following outputs.
- Outcome 2: Women migrant workers are less vulnerable to violence and trafficking and benefit from coordinated responsive quality services.
- Output 2.2: Capacity of regional, national and local government, social partners and civil society to implement policy for coordinated multi-sectoral services provision that respond to the needs of migrant women workers is strengthened.
- Output 2.3: Networks of women’s groups, community-based organizations, labour unions and local government agencies are established and mobilized to prevent violence and trafficking of women throughout the migration cycle.
- Outcome 3: Data, knowledge and attitudes on the rights and contributions of women migrant workers are improved.
- Output 3.3: Public campaigns to change attitudes and behaviours towards women migrant workers are implemented, particularly targeting employers, recruiters, duty-bearers and youth groups, including to address VAW, trafficking and gender based discrimination of women migrant workers.
Proposed Target Groups and Locations
Under the CfP, the RP is required to implement the project in Bangkok, Tak (Mae Sot) and Chiang Mai Provinces. Through the proposed activities, direct beneficiaries of the programme will be women migrant workers, family members of migrants, former women migrant workers survivors of violence. Indirect beneficiaries will be other community members including local leaders, young people, men and boys and duty bearers.
Legally registered Women Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Women Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Women Group Networks in Thailand with a proven track record in violence against women, migration and human trafficking, particularly around providing capacity building trainings, community mobilizing, peer networking and consultations with local authorities and presence in target locations are eligible to submit proposals.
