The approved project is part of the implementation of the 2015-2020 Strategic Action Plan of IRC Chad, including its humanitarian response strategy, and aligns with the priorities of the Overview of Humanitarian Needs and HRP 2018. It aims to strengthen the impact of the ongoing IRC intervention in the Lake District with the support of the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), the European Commission (ECHO) and the Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), providing targeted assistance to the most vulnerable women and girls and promoting synergies between sectors (protection, health and livelihoods). Thus, IRC (1) strengthens access to GBV case management services and provision of sexual and reproductive health care, while promoting the development of women’s income-generating activities (IGAs) and girls in 13 IDP sites in Fouli Prefecture; (2) set up a women’s center to prevent and manage GBV cases and make multi-use unconditional cash transfers to meet food and non-food needs in the Dar el Kheir IDP site, located in Kaya Prefecture.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access for survivors of all forms of gender-based violence (GBV) to psychosocial support and medical services, and a significant reduction of GBV risks; (2) increased access for GBV survivors to clinical care for reproductive health services; and (3) increased equitable access to income and capital for women, and strengthened decision-making power in financial resources management. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
