GBVAP and Women’s Empowerment Training of Trainers Consultant

Job Title: GBVAP and Women’s Empowerment Training of Trainers Consultant

Country: Jordan
Organization: Collateral Repair Project
Closing date: 29 Nov 2021


Collateral Repair Project (CRP), founded in 2006 to support refugees living in Jordan, runs a community center serving urban refugees and Jordanians in the East Amman neighborhood of Hashemi Shamali. With the start of the Syrian refugee crisis in 2011, our work expanded to serve Syrians, minority refugee groups, and impoverished Jordanians, with a focus on assisting extremely vulnerable refugees overlooked by larger organizations. CRP has steadily grown to reach larger beneficiary numbers and expand our services to underserved Sudanese, Yemeni, and Somali refugees through our second community center in Downtown Amman.

CRP has in place Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Awareness and Leadership programs, tailored to encourage positive behavior in both men and women in the community and to harness community members’ capacity to take on leadership roles. Our gender-focused programming works towards addressing the prevalence of domestic violence, harassment, and discrimination in the communities we serve, and our leadership programming aims to encourage community members to take the lead in advocating for change in their own communities. Graduates of these programs are encouraged to train to become community tutors, and all CRP’s GBV programs are now led by members of the refugee and host populations under the supervision of CRP staff. In 2021, an external consultant reviewed and developed an updated version of CRP’s GBVAP and Women’s Empowerment seminar curriculum, as well as an improved facilitation methodology for seminar trainers with the support of CRP Community Center Programs staff.

This consultancy constitutes one part of a three-year project funded by the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women. The aim of the project is to improve the safety and wellbeing of women, girls, and the families and communities they belong to in targeted urban areas of Amman. CRP intends to achieve this through coordinated programming of three types: (1) Gender-Based Violence and Women’s Empowerment awareness raising seminars and a community-led volunteer service program, Leadership in Action, that will plan local interventions focused on GBV and women’s rights; (2) basic needs assistance for vulnerable female-headed households (FHHs) coupled with emotional and economic resilience programming; (3) Help Desk initiation at our community centers to improve help-seeking behavior and meet community-wide needs through internal programming and external referrals to local partner organizations and agencies.
