One of the three transformative results in the UNFPA strategic plan 2018-2021 is to bring Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and all harmful practices to an end. As one of the UN agencies working to further gender equality and women’s empowerment, as well as address the physical and emotional consequences of GBV, UNFPA provides guidance and coordinates partners’ actions to effectively promote the rights of all women and girls to live free of violence and abuse. In Nigeria, 1 in 3 women has suffered physical or sexual abuse. Gender-Based Violence is a grave violation of human rights, no matter when, where, or how it takes place. There are many forms of violence against women, which have many potential negative health consequences for women and their children.   Read More
 

The overall goal of the GBViE course is to increase capacity of local organization and government actors to work in GBViE prevention and response programming.

The GBViE course is designed as an advanced course with four major components. The delivery of the course is structured in a blended approach of face-to-face as well as online learning. Prior to the face-to-face component, selected participants are expected to complete two free online courses on managing gender-based violence programmes in emergencies available at https://extranet.unfpa.org/Apps/GBVinEmergencies/index.html and prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse available at https://kayaconnect.org/course/info.php?id=273. Participants are expected to send an electronic copy of their completion certificates prior to the resumption of the two weeks face-to-face/virtual component of the course. Read More

The minimum qualification for admission into the course is a Bachelor’s degree with two years’ professional experience. The two years’ professional is waived for graduate students. Preference is given to female applicants that meet the criteria.

Due to the structure of the GBViE course, non-graduates cannot be accommodated. The team coordinating the course have therefore developed series of short courses to meet the needs of specific local actors. The short courses are designed to run for 3-5 days depending on the target audience. The courses may be facilitated either in Yola or the various locations of the target audience, thus, each short course will have different cost implication.
