    GBV Facilitator

    Reports to: GBV Officer


    Duration: 6 Months Contract with possibility of extension

    The overall goal of HIAS’ global GBV Prevention and Response programming is for forcibly displaced refugee women, girls, sexual and gender minorities to pursue their potential and to access their human and legal rights, free from violence and oppression. This means HIAS GBV programming works to ensure;

    1. Forcibly displaced women, girls, sexual and gender minorities face a reduced risk of GBV,
    2. Survivors of sexual and physical violence have access to coordinated psychosocial, health, and legal services,
    3. Family, community, and institutions support refugee women, girls, sexual and gender minorities in accessing and using their rights.

    HIAS uses a survivor-centered, community-based approach. Our programs consider the voices and needs of survivors and prioritize their leadership in program design and implementation. HIAS works with communities’ natural systems in order to optimize support for survivors, building partnerships to promote and protect the rights of survivors, women, girls, sexual and gender minorities. This approach enables HIAS to meet the safety, psychosocial, economic, and justice needs of survivors; facilitate their access to appropriate care; and empower communities to lead efforts that challenge beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours that perpetuate or condone violence against women, girls, sexual and gender minorities in the community.

    HIAS seeks to recruit GBV facilitators who will support the project through activities aimed at preventing violence against women and girls within the urban refugee community.
