Gender-based violence (GBV) Movement building
Women for Women International (WfWI) is partnering with the Global Women’s Institute (GWI) at George Washington University for a three-country and three-year long project to develop programming models that equip non-GBV specialists to receive disclosures from GBV survivors, meet survivors’ basic & immediate needs, and facilitate access between GBV survivors and GBV response services in accordance with best practices, context and local realities. 
Over the next 18 months, WfWI and three partner organizations will deliver six pilot projects across the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Iraq and South Sudan. 
Consultancy Purpose
WfWI is seeking an experienced consultant to support in the development of pilot activities, particularly with the adaptation of existing, and development of new, training curricula, materials and guidelines. Topics will all broadly relate to Gender Equality and GBV, but with focus on different areas including psycho-social first aid (PFA) and support, safety planning and preparedness, data security and confidentiality, disability inclusion, adolescent girls, etc.
