The Municipal Council of Vacoas-Phoenix has always shown a particular interest to support the cause of Gender links. In spite of the fact that it has not signed the MOU, the Council has agreed to work in close collaboration with Gender links. In Summit 2013, Vacoas/Phoenix came back with the first prize as a Centre of Excellence. Mandated to meet the needs and the constitutional rights of inhabitants of Vacoas/Phoenix, the Council ensures that appropriate measures are taken to minimise negative effects impacting on the right to a decent life and also encourages public awareness and participation to create a favourable environment by minimizing gender based violence.

Consequently, the Council with the help of Gender links has devised a Gender Action Plan as well as a GBV Action Plan which integrates Gender and Economy as well as strategies for GBV.

Vacoas-Phoenix, more than ever, is committed to ensuring that the Gender Based Violence Action Plan approved in 2013 is being implemented and last year an amount of Rs 40,000 was earmarked to conduct activities/campaigns and programmes to raise Gender awareness among the inhabitants, for the empowerment of women and to combat GBV.
