Conflict Mitigation

A Safer Zambia (ASAZA)

CARE led a consortium of local organizations, Zambian government institutions, and international partners in A Safer Zambia (ASAZA) program to provide a multi-pronged approach to the issue of gender-based violence (GBV) in Zambia. First, CARE sought to strengthen vulnerable populations’ access to GBV services and their utilization of these services through the creation of eight Coordinated Response Centers (CRCs). Second, ASAZA increased the response capacity of local institutions through collaboration with local NGOs and various Zambian government agencies, culminating in the eventual handover of the CRCs to the Ministry of Health (MoH). Finally, ASAZA worked with traditional community leaders to conduct a coordinated outreach and behavioral change campaign to improve GBV prevention strategies. Taken together, these activities comprised a twofold approach to tackling the problem of GBV. While the CRCs represented a restorative approach, the array of informational, educational and behavior change communications represented a preventative approach. [14 pages] Read More...

Empowering Men to Engage and Redefine Gender Equality (EMERGE) Final Evaluation

CARE International Sri Lanka’s ‘Empowering Men to Engage and Redefine Gender Equality’ (EMERGE) project was implemented across 30 villages and 5 plantations in the districts of Batticaloa, Polonnaruwa, Nuwara Eliya (2010-2014) and Hambantota and Moneragala (2010-2013). The project attempted to address persistent issues of gender inequality and GBV through the engagement of men and from a perspective that challenged hegemonic masculinities. The emphasis of this project was on transforming attitudes, perceptions and practice of gender inequality in various forms, working with men, boys and women to this end. The project worked at multiple levels - household, community, divisional, district and at national level where it engaged in advocacy efforts around the issues of gender equality and GBV. For CARE Sri Lanka, engaging men has been acknowledged as an important component of gender programming, as it is seen as widening the scope of its work to address GBV, by working with both men and women to challenge dominant masculinities.

From the Ground Up: Gender and Conflict Analysis in Yemen

In order to better understand the impact of armed conflict on men, women, boys, and girls, and changes in gender roles and relationships at household and community levels since the onset of conflict in March 2015, Oxfam, CARE and GenCap in Yemen collaborated to collect and analyse available data, with a view to further informing immediate humanitarian response as well as longer-term programming in Yemen. Sound understanding of the differential impact of the conflict on women, men, boys, and girls, helps us adapt our programming to specific life circumstances, capacities and vulnerabilities of men and women, but also to recognize entry points for transformative gender-specific actions that will respond to inequality and injustice in the future.

Sisi Vajana “We the Youth” Initiative

Sisi Vijana is a three-year (December 2013- November 2016) innovative initiative that works with young people between 13 to 23 years old in Burundi and DRC. The objective of the initiative is to reduce sexual and gender-based violence and promote gender equality. Due to the lack of research on masculinity among young people in the Great Lakes region, the first phase of this initiative includes a formative study on the attitudes of young people towards gender equality, masculinity, sexuality and violence. The results will contribute to the development of a regional model of engagement of young men and boys focused on transforming gender roles. The model will be used for capacity building of youth in the prevention and fight against SGBV. [52 pages] Read More...

L’initative Sisi Vijana (“Nous Les Jeunes”)

D’une durée de trois ans (Décembre 2013- Novembre 2016) SISI VIJANA est une initiative innovatrice qui travaille avec les jeunes de 13-23 ans du Burundi et de la RDC car travailler avec des jeunes hommes s'est avéré être une stratégie efficace pour redéfinir les normes de genre d'une société en faveur de l'égalité des genres. L’initiative est mise en œuvre par deux partenaires locaux à savoir REJA et JJB dans les provinces de GITEGA et NGOZI. L’objectif de l’initiative est de réduire les violences sexuelles basées sur le genre (SGBV) ainsi que la promotion de l’égalité des genres. En raison de l’absence des recherches sur la masculinité chez les jeunes dans la région des Grands Lacs, la première phase de cette initiative comprend une étude formative sur les attitudes des jeunes face à l'égalité des genres, la masculinité, la sexualité et la violence. Les résultats vont contribuer à l’élaboration d’un modèle régional d’engagement des jeunes garçons axé sur le genre transformatif. Le modèle sera utilisé pour renforcer les capacités des jeunes dans la prévention et la lutte contre les VSBG. [57 pages] Read More...
