ICC Seeks EOIs to Support Sexual, Gender-based Abuse Victims in Central African Republic

The International Criminal Court’s Trust Fund for Victims is inviting international non-governmental organizations to submit expressions of interest, or EOIs, to support victim survivors of gender-based and sexual violence in the Central African Republic.

ICC said May 6 that it has identified a pressing need to provide victim survivors of such crimes in the African country and is now seeking projects that will support their physical and psychological rehabilitation. It indicated that it may also open other programs to support the rehabilitation of victims of other crimes in the country.

For the current program, ICC aims to provide “integrated rehabilitation assistance to victim survivors of SGBV, their families and affected communities so they are able to move from victim-hood to stability as survivors.” The court is also encouraging interested NGOs to integrate in their proposals local capacity strengthening and partnerships with women grass-roots and victim support groups.

ICC will accept EOIs through email from May 5 to Aug. 5. Organizations that make ICC’s shortlist will then be invited to submit a full technical and financial proposal after attending a proposal development workshop in the Central African Republic. Winners will be chosen by the TFV board of directors and ICC’s Pre-Trial Chamber for the Central African Republic.
