Deadline: 22 February 2020
The Swiss NGO cfd (The Feminist Peace Organization) has announced a Call for Concept Notes for “Combating root causes of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Gaza”.
cfd is a peace and development organisation working towards gender equality, the empowerment of women and participation of women in conflict resolution and peace building efforts.
Cfd engages in the following sectors: prevention of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), income generation and social and political inclusion. They are independent of political and religious affiliation and oriented towards a vision of a good life for every human being, regardless of gender, ethnic background and religion.
Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the Gaza Strip is a key protection and health concern. The current humanitarian crisis and the strict siege in the Gaza Strip for over 14 years has exacerbated GBV in all its forms, including sexual violence, domestic violence and child marriage.
The awarded project should address issues of GBV and underlying root causes with a focus on prevention, complemented with activities of protection and/or prosecution of GBV. The program should be based on a Human-Rights Based Approach (HRBA). Furthermore, cfd is looking for innovate and sustainable approaches in combating GBV, also reflecting on current discussions around gender values and norms in society.
The following interventions are particularly favoured:
