  • autorenew Implementation (Status)

In the last 7 years, FPU actively contributed, through support to its media partners, to women empowerment and preventing discriminatory or harmful practices. BNNRC and its network of 16 community radio stations across the country produce and broadcast daily educational programs for girls and raise awareness on the harmful effects and impact of early child marriages. Radio station Bikrampur even recorded 54 cases of prevented child marriages because listeners to the radio programs took action. FPU also provides fellowships to young women from rural areas to start a career in journalism. With this project, FPU wants to achieve that media and civil society organisations work together, through producing and distributing content and increased capacity, to advocate for prevention of malpractices against women and girls (child marriages and abuse). They should also work together to actively lobby with central and local governments for improved implementation of existing legislation and measures against perpetrators. Furthermore, media should actively investigate and expose cases of violence and gender discrimination, and act as a watchdog for society.
