January 2019 – Following the outbreak of violence in Northern Rakhine State in August 2017, more than 735,000 Rohingya crossed from Myanmar into Bangladesh over a period of several months.These refugees joined some 200,000 to 300,000 Rohingya already in Bangladesh following earlier waves of displacement. The speed and scale of the influx has resulted in significant humanitarian needs. With GAC’s support, World Vision Canada is helping to meet the needs of Rohingya refugees with comprehensive programming to protect them from gender-based violence (GBV). Project activities include: (1) conducting awareness-raising sessions at various community protection spaces on sexual and reproductive health, child rights, good hygiene practices, and socialization for adolescent girls and boys; (2) mobilizing communities to conduct awareness-raising sessions on GBV and child protection violations, including child marriage; (3) providing case by case support to children and women at risk as identified; (4) providing psychosocial support to vulnerable girls and boys at community protection spaces; and (5) providing gender and age-appropriate livelihood opportunities, via cash-for-work activities.

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased knowledge and skills within the refugee community of community-based mechanisms of protection against GBV and child violations., such as abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence, using age-specific and culturally-appropriate approaches for women, girls and boys; and (2) increased access to holistic, age-specific and culturally-appropriate responsive services for women, girls and boys that have survived GBV and child protection violations. The expected ultimate outcome is reduced vulnerability, increased and maintained human dignity (particularly for women and girls), and vulnerable lives saved of displaced populations affected by the Rohingya humanitarian crisis in Cox’s Bazar.
