PREVENT – Preventing gender-based violence and violence against children

The project “Preventing gender-based violence and violence against children” (PREVENT) aims to prevent and combat gender-based violence (GBV) and violence against children, by supporting Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) active in these fields, in Greece and Cyprus, and by increasing their knowledge, capacity and sustainability. PREVENT is co-funded by the European Union through the Citizens, Equality, Rights, and Values (CERV) programme, and by the Bodossaki Foundation and NGO Support Centre, with a total budget of €2.3 million.


PREVENT is coordinated by the Bodossaki Foundation (Greece) in consortium with the NGO Support Centre (Cyprus).


During the 3 years of its implementation, running from February 2024 to January 2027, PREVENT will launch an open call for funding for projects that prevent and combat either GBV or violence against children, making available €1.61 million in grants to civil society in Greece and Cyprus. PREVENT will also provide an integrated capacity building programme and professional support services, tailored to the needs of CSOs in Greece and Cyprus, to promote their organisational development and sustainability.
