Appel d'offres
Trainer on anti-fraud on sex and gender based violence

Introduction

Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international Catholic Organization, under the Society of Jesus Trustee. The Mission of JRS is to accompany, serve and advocate for refugees and forcibly displaced people whose needs are more urgent and forgotten. 
The Jesuit Refugee Service Safe Haven Program is looking for an experienced facilitator to provide a training to JRS staff on the topic of Anti-Fraud Mechanisms and Sexual and Gender Based Violence. Safe haven is a protection programme in which Jesuit Refugee service and United Nation High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR) have partnered to provide protection to survivors of sexual gender based Violence. The program offers Physical protection and psycho social services to women, adolescent girls and boys between the age of 11 to 18 years.
The latter are unaccompanied and separated minors who have undergone various forms of sexual gender based violence such as defilement, rape, female genital mutilation, domestic violence, forced and early marriages, child labor and abduction to be child soldiers. Instead of attending school these girls and boys are forced into situations, which make them  hostages to the harmful traditional practices and lifestyles that not only violate their rights but also keep them in abject poverty and waste them away.

Fraud is a deliberate deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain, or to deprive a victim of legal right. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, such as obtaining a passport or travel document, by way of false statements. In the context of refugee camps, majority of the refugees find themselves in a compromising situation where they may be forced to part with money or something else for them to gain access to services. Women are particularly vulnerable and in ignorance of their rights, they easily tend to give in for sexual favors to get the needed services.
Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) refers to any act that is perpetrated against a person’s will and is based on gender norms and unequal power relationships. It encompasses threats of violence and coercion. It can be physical, emotional, psychological, or sexual in nature, and can take the form of a denial of resources or access to services. It inflicts harm on women, girls, men and boys. Many cases of SGBV are rarely handled to their rightful conclusion in the camp and many cases end up being negotiated out of courts which makes a mockery of justice and fans the vice. It then becomes a vicious cycle in which many victims fail to get justice.
Due to desperation and not knowing who to turn to in such situations, both the humanitarian staff, and the refugees find themselves in between a rock and a hard place. Coupled by the fact that refugees endure extreme hardships in the camp against a back ground of civil wars, broken family structures, sexual and gender based violence among many other problems, many end up compromising and end up being taken advantage of.
It is against this back ground that Safe Haven Programme wishes to organize this training to empower the staff and other vulnerable brothers and sisters, especially SGBV survivors to equip them with necessary skills that will help them stand up for their rights and enable them handle such situations appropriately.

Goal

The goal of this consultancy training is to empower JRS staff in Kakuma Refugee Camp to focus on timely prevention corruption and fraud in  SGBV related cases within the humanitarian set up 

Objectives

The training will be expected to empower JRS staff with right information, knowledge and skills that will make them stand up to injustices like fraud, especially in relation to SGBV cases. They will be TOT’s to the Incentive Staff, Community members and be the crusaders of anti-fraud interventions skills related to SGBV cases at the centres and at the community level.

The following will be expected of trainee JRS staff upon completion of the training:

  • To have proper knowledge, attitudes and intervention skills to prevent and respond appropriately to fraud  and corruption in the context of SGBV related cases in the centres and in the community.
  • To identify Fraud on SGBV related cases, carry out assessments and plan for interventions for the beneficiaries at the centres and at the community.
  • To raise awareness about the life factors and prevention of SGBV to the community and enable them act with a clear sense of direction in matters touching on fraud.
