JNUS, in partnership with Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK) and UN Women, has been implementing this project since January 2020 among the women of Rohingya Camp-3 and adjacent host communities at Rajapalong Union of Ukhiya upazila in Cox’s Bazar. The aim of this project is to understand the drivers of conflicts between the two communities as well as to develop a deeper insight on the norms and values responsible for breeding tension at local level. In order to tackle this rising tension and for promoting social cohesion, this project has been empowering the women leaders, and the women networks to play a positive role. Women leaders and networks have been offering inclusive platforms for initiating discussions and dialogues with the local stakeholders to share their opinion on how to maintain peace and stability in the refugee camps and its surrounding areas. In addition to that, JNUS and ASK extended support to twelve women networks for preparing masks and distributing hygiene materials among the 2000 families in the host community and Rohingya community. Under this project, the members of Women Group (WG) have been trained as paralegal to facilitate mediation sessions at the community level with the aim to maintain peace in the society.
