The Komuniti Lukautim Meri Project (KLOM): Addressing Violence against Women and Girls in Papua New Guinea operates in two provinces, Sandaun and Western Highlands. It uses community systems strengthening and rights- and evidenced-based approaches to address the problem of widespread violence against women and girls. The project works directly with local partners and communities to achieve the following three objectives:

  • Prevent violence against women and girls through community mobilization, education and the empowerment of men and women to take action to stop gender-based violence
  • Respond to violence against women and girls by improving access to quality services for survivors
  • Empower women and girls by promoting enabling environments in schools and communities that support their right to make choices, access services and participate in decision-making processes
