Resume:

Formålet med dette projekt er at ændre en institutionaliseret kultur i Nicaragua, der legitimerer brugen af vold mod børn og unge. Denne kultur vil blive ændret igennem et øget samarbejde mellem den offentlige sektor og civilsamfundet og via ungdomsdrevet fortalervirksomhed. 100 ungdomsledere vil blive trænet i at opdage og reportere sager om vold. Ungdomslederne vil udføre peer-to-peer træning af yderligere 625 unge i 20 forskellige ’communities’. De unge støttes op af lokale komiteer (CCPG’er) bestående af voksne interessenter, fx religiøse og politiske ledere, som kæmper børnenes sag. CCPG’erne bidrager bl.a. ved at facilitere de unges adgang til ansvarshaverne. Via CCPG’erne skabes et forum for samarbejde mellem den offentlige sektor og civilsamfundet. Ungdomsledere og -ambassadører vil skabe en ungdomsbevægelse, som via lokale og nationale kampagner vil nå ud til 15.000 børn og unge. Desuden vil RVN udbrede deres model for ungdomsdrevet fortalervirksomhed nationalt og regionalt. Herved styrkes RVN’s position i civilsamfundet og deres muligheder for indflydelse.
