Gender-based violence (GBV)
As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its
objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable

Gender based and sexualized violence (SGBV) remains a big challenge worldwide and in
Tanzania and coordinated efforts are needed to enhance both prevention and
response.  The Access to Justice forWomen and Children/ Society in Action for Equality (SAFE) programme, jointly implemented by the Ministry of Constitutional and Legal Affairs (MoCLA) andGIZ, aims at contributing towards the elimination of SGBV through improving the
prerequisites for access to justice for women and children. To this end, it will work towards (1) identifying the legal and institutional causes that may impede access to justice, (2) strengthening the capacities of state actors to provide support services in cases of violence against women and children and (3) improving the support offerings of non-state actors at community level. In addition, a nation-wide campaign and different outreach, community engagement and advocacy activities should raise awareness about the damaging effects of
violence against women and children and create an exchange about rights and rights violations.

The SAFE programme is seeking to recruit an expert in the area of access to justice, legal reform and legal aid to lead on the activities related to legal and institutional reform as well as support services for survivors of GBV with a focus on legal aid.
