Kurzbeschreibung:

Projektziel


The aim of the InPower programme is to (1) empower women and girls, especially those with disabilities, to be safe from different forms of gender-based violence (GBV) and harmful practices and advance gender and disability rights; and (2) create conducive home, community and school environments where gender equality and disability inclusion are embraced. Contribution to SDGs 1,3,4,5 and 10 and Gender Action Plan III objectives ensuring freedom from all forms of gender-based violence, promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights and strengthening economic and social rights and the empowerment of girls and women.


Erwartete Ergebnisse


1) Girls, boys, young women and men have the mental, verbal, physical and resiliency skills to act as change agents on protection from GBV in targeted school communities;

2) Behaviour of the service providers in the community (health, social, leaders) has changed regarding gender and disability norms and they provide a supportive environment on protection from GBV;

3) Girls and young women with disabilities are retained and progress in the local primary and secondary schools, which provide safe, inclusive and gender-sensitive learning environments;

4) A more gender-inclusive disability rights movement is built, with an advocacy agenda that promotes women’s and girls equal enjoyment of their rights.


Zielgruppe


The core target group will be girls and young women aged 9 to 20 years in 5 districts of Sofala province (Beira, Dondo, Buzi, Nhamatanda, Gorongosa); Direct beneficiaries: approx. 18,000 people; Indirect beneficiaries: approx. 38,400 people.

 


Maßnahmen


Develop and roll out the disability-inclusive No Means No Curriculum; Coaching of partner organisations and participatory community sessions to break stereotypes on gender and disability; Support GBV case management in the communities (identification, follow-up, referral); Support primary and secondary schools to provide safe, inclusive and gender-sensitive learning environments; provide rehabilitation and other direct services to persons with disabilities; support umbrella organisation FAMOD to mainstream gender equality in their work; strengthen the capacities of Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) to protect and safeguard their rights; train institutions that guarantee the rights of people with disabilities; include a gender focus in alternative reporting and review processes.

 


Hintergrundinformation


The programme responds to the growing exposure of girls and young women with disabilities to GBV in the rural district communities of Sofala Province – a situation that has worsened with the recent crises, climate change, floods, the severe cyclones in 2019 and 2021 and the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on a recently conducted gender analysis, the main contributing factors to this situation are deeply-rooted negative stereotypes and taboos against disability and low accountability mechanisms on behalf of the responsible institutions dealing with GBV. At the same time, girls and women with disabilities hardly have any knowledge of their rights, as they are largely excluded and marginalized from family, community and school life. One point worth highlighting is that girls and women with disabilities have little barrier-free access to sexual and reproductive health, rights and education, a key factor for gender equity.


ADC co-financing rate: 80 percent of total programme cost.
