UN Women and UNFPA (Regional Offices for West and Central Africa) are launching a ‘hackathon’ under the French Muskoka Fund to address violence against girls and women in West and Central Africa.

Violence against women and girls remains extremely high in West and Central Africa. Women and girls are “number one targets” of all forms of online violence.

le concept

A hackathon is an event where teams must propose and develop a simple solution that can be sustainable and scaled.

As part of the theme of combating gender-based violence, young people must present a concrete solution with a detailed financing plan and a short (1-2 years) and medium-term (3-5 years) projection of the expected results. Teams must develop their project over a limited period of time.

The hackathon mainly focuses on 2 themes:

  • Put technology at the service of the fight against violence against women and girls.
  • Fight online violence against women and girls.

Submit your #GBVsolutions to fight violence against girls and women in West and Central Africa

​You are between 18 and 35 years old, you want to propose and develop innovative solutions/ tools and thus actively participate in the protection of girls and women against all forms of violence including digital?

So take part in this Hackathon and try to win prizes and get mentorship to develop your idea.

Project Submission Deadline: November 17, 2023
