1. Support the advancement of women’s human rights; increase the participation of women and incorporating gender perspectives including addressing disparities; and the impact of sexual and gender-based violence in line with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and UN Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security.
  2. Restore dignity and promote peace building, community reconciliation, acceptance, and social inclusion through conflict-prevention, the rebuilding of community safety nets, and mitigation of stigma, discrimination, and trauma.
  3. Support the rights of children affected by armed conflict by supporting intergenerational responses for integrating and rehabilitating former child soldiers and other war-affected youth in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
  4. Develop and implement communications and outreach initiatives for cultivating relationships, enhancing visibility, mobilising communities, changing attitudes, managing crisis, generating support, and encouraging financial contributions.
  5. Ensure capacity building to strengthen quality and sustainability.
  6. Work with implementing partners to assess, mitigate and evaluate the likely environmental impact of a proposed project or programme, taking into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural and human-health impacts, both beneficial and adverse.
  7. Facilitate action learning through participatory approach (planning, research, programming, monitoring and evaluation) by safeguarding a dynamic, interactional, and transformative process between people, groups, and institutions that enables victims both individually and collectively, to realize their full potential and be engaged in their own redress.
  8. Conflict sensitivity: ‘Do no Harm’ is a fundamental principle of the implementation of all TFV programmes to which it is fully committed. TFV programming should not contribute to the creation of further harm, neither for the victims themselves, nor for the society in which they live. Therefore, TFV ensures that implementation of all its supported activities has no negative impact and thus does not escalate tensions between beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries to a conflict.
