The project aspires to enhance support to human rights on the levels of public policy, society, and regional communities. It is expected that after the implementation of the project, the observance of international human rights standards in Lithuania will be strengthened, the awareness of the needs of vulnerable communities will be raised among specialists and journalists, and youth in the regions will be better able to recognise gender-based violence and find ways of responding to it.
