UN Women is seeking to engage qualified Non-Governmental Organizations as Responsible Parties (RPs) to support the implementation of the project “Building protection capacities of women and girls IDPs hosted in 5 municipalities of the West, Littoral and Centre regions”.
Proposal can be made for the entire project regions or for some particular regions as the proponent deems it appropriate. Each proposal should carry all the activities in the selected area.
- The project objective is to ensure that displaced women and girls affected by the conflict in the North-West and South-West to the West, Littoral and the Centre regions are able to protect them-selves, build resilience and transition to autonomy. The overall goal of the initiative is to ensure that women and girls lead, participate in their security, and are empowered by and benefit from humanitarian response and recovery and resilience building efforts by meeting specific needs of women and girls as well as mainstreaming gender into humanitarian actions and resilience building. It builds on the successes of UN Women’s humanitarian portfolio since 2014 in response to the refugee crisis from CAR in the East and the Boko Haram crisis in the Far North, much of which was supported by the Government of Japan (GoJ). These consecutive initiatives have improved the lives of thousands of women and girls by providing an integrated service package through women cohesion spaces created in the refugee camps and host communities.
- The budget range for this proposal should be [50 000 USD Min. – 100 000 USD Max. per region].
- The project will target 5 municipalities in three regions, including Babadjou and Dschang in the West region, Loum and Djombe Penja in the Littoral and Bafia in the Centre region.
