Background on the project
Strengthening Access to Holistic, Gender Responsive, and Accountable Justice in Nepal (SAHAJ) aims to reduce vulnerability towards different forms of Gender Based Violence (GBV) with increased breaking culture of silence around GBV and increased access to security and justice services. Through a consortium led by VSO with co-lead International Alert (IA); partners Forum for Women, Law and Development (FWLD), Emory University; SAMAGRA; and MAHURI Home, SAHAJ started implementing programs in Provinces 2 and 5. Among many Economic Empowerment of women and girls is one of the major activity of SAHAJ project. So far primary actors have developed business plan and started Income Generating Activities based on their skill and scope of the area. Therefore, to make IGA activities successful, it is necessary to sell the products in market and get profit. In this regards SAHAJ project has planned to conduct basic value chain development training to the community volunteers who will later support and mentor primary actors to develop market linkage and make maximum profit. The project envisions that if women and girls are economically empowered, they will be capable to speak against any forms of violence and challenge harmful social norms that perpetrate Gender based Violence (GBV).
VSO Nepal is looking for an accomplished and highly motivated national consultant to conduct 5 days basic VCD training in each Province 2 & 5. The total number of participants in Province 2 will be max 15 and in province 5 max 20. All the training should be conducted in Nepali language. The consultant will be responsible for designing and developing training package particularly focusing from gender perspective because IGA is led by women(daughters-in-law) and adolescent girls in both provinces.
