This case study outlines how the World Vision team in Kenya, with support from the GWI team, facilitated awareness sessions on SEA and GBV with community members based on recommendations from women and girls living in Dadaab refugee camp.
This case study outlines how to take a recommendation from affected communities; in this case a request for sex-segregated distribution lines from refugee women and girls in Kakuma refugee settlement, and work with a distribution team to implement a logistics-based recommendation.
This case study describes the process the World Vision team in Jordan, with support from the GWI team, approached the decision to create and the process of implementing formal and informal accompanying systems for girls to travel to activities at the Peace Center in Al Azraq camp in Jordan, and reflections on providing information sharing around moving in groups.
This case study outlines how GOAL Syria, in undergoing Safeguarding, Protection, and Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) action planning, adapted an piloted a risk assessment tool for safe, accountable, and inclusive programming. This tool was accompanied by tools adapted from the Empowered Aid toolkit. The authors discuss lessons learned from this preventative approach towards safeguarding, inclusion, and gender-related risks to ensure safer programming with greater accountability and inclusivity.
This case study is based on a one-day training that took place in Dakar for the WFP and their regional partners. This training was an opportunity to facilitate for PSEA staff and Cashed Based Transfers staff to jointly identify areas of collaboration to better mitigate SEA risks in their activities, and determine key actions, roles and responsibilities, and timelines to achieve them.
This case study provides guidance on using PSEA signage at distribution points. The study was developed by the team in Uganda as part of a set of resources used during the second phase of Empowered Aid, which applied recommendations from women and girls to help make aid distributions safer.
This case study outlines how Empowered Aid our resources have been used in several humanitarian responses to mitigate risks of sexual exploitation and abuse through engaging and sharing power with crisis-affected communities. One such response is Lebanon, where World Vision Lebanon utilized Empowered Aid resources to meaningfully scale up prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse in its programs and to center the voices of women and girls in humanitarian response.
This case study exemplifies how Empowered Aid training materials have helped several organizations to better understand gendered power dynamics and mainstream gender-based violence (GBV) prevention practices. One such organization is Global Communities, an international development and humanitarian aid organization that operates in a variety of sectors in the areas of Humanitarian Assistance, Sustainable Development and Financial Inclusion. Empowered Aid has supported Global Communities in mainstreaming GBV prevention by providing findings that inform their work and materials to help train local actors and reduce sexual exploitation and abuse and GBV risk in their aid distribution and programming.
This case study serves as a product of World Vision's continued to partnership with GWI in the implementation and uptake of the Empowered Aid model. WV was keen on supporting local actors to strengthen SEA risk mitigation as they work most closely with crisis-affected communities and play a key role in ensuring the voices of women and girls from said communities are heard. As such, WV has been collaborating with Community Empowerment for Rural Development (CEFORD) as a copartner on the General Food Assistance project with funding from the World Food Program.
In this case study, it is made clear how Empowered Aid resources have been used in several humanitarian responses to mitigate risks of sexual exploitation (SEA) and abuse through engaging and sharing power with crisis affected communities, in particular women and girls. One such response is Ethiopia, where the Inter-agency Network for Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse utilized Empowered Aid resources to meaningfully involve women and girls in humanitarian response planning and strategies.
