The project provides a safe space for self-empowerment and knowledge enhancement on combating gender-based violence (GBV) through 5 workshops for selected women and girls within Kawargosk refugee camp in Erbil. These participants will be potential trainers to expand knowledge on combating gender-based violence in their circles in the camp and transfer the knowledge they learned through Training for Trainers – ToTs Workshops to other active girls and women in the community. In addition, the awareness campaign will share knowledge and information about GBV challenges in the camp and raise awareness at a public event. Both of these will help to mobilize at the community level in the camp to further counter GBV cases and increase knowledge beyond the individual, thereby building strong alliances between generations and gender roles in the long run.

Expected Results Under This Project

  • 50  women were trained on how to deal with gender-related cases and shared their knowledge with other women in the refugee camp after the project.
  • 200  people are aware of gender-based violence cases in the camp and advocate in their circles to combat gender-based violence through the public event.
