End-line Evaluation of the project Enhancement of protection mechanism and community resilience against Gender-based Violence (GBV) at refugee camp and host community
End-line Evaluation “Project for enhancement of protection mechanism and community resilience against Gender-based Violence (GBV) at refugee camp and host community”
Almost a million Rohingya fled to Bangladesh during the influx and live in extremely precarious conditions in 34 camps of Ukhiya and Teknaf Upazilas, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Despite the sufferings and oppressions of all Rohingya, women and children, in particular, have been victims of domestic violence, sexual and gender-based violence (GBV), and trafficking. Many NGOs, and INGOs including the UN came forward to help them with material aid and emotional support for women and young girls who experienced sexual and physical abuse and suffering. However, material and emotional support for women and adolescent girls at risk of GBV has been insufficient to enable them to live safely.
World Vision Bangladesh (WVB) implemented projects for refugees staying at the camps to enhance the communal ability to prevent and respond to gender-based violence. Before this mission, WVB designed this project to provide GBV support services in Camp19 and the associated host community of Cox’s Bazar to reduce GBV risks to women and adolescent girls. The implementation of this project has escalated community GBV prevention and response and improved access to various supports in the refugee camp and host community.
WVB decided on an End-line Evaluation of this project to address the effectiveness of the project with the aim to design new interventions with a new project. In doing so, WVB has contracted the Centre for Research and Development (CRD) to evaluate this project. The team is led by Dr. Md Mokhlesur Rahman, lead consultant and CEO of CRD.
