Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence in Jordan
Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence in Jordan is a multi-disciplinary program led by WAGE lead partner ABA ROLI. Launched in 2021, the program’s goal is to improve prevention efforts and coordinated response to GBV in Jordan. The program works to enhance technical expertise and coordination among community-based GBV providers in select regions for high-quality, survivor-centered, trauma-informed, targeted, and holistic solutions, and evidence-based preventive remedies for women and their families. ABA ROLI supports partner organizations in developing their management of cases, evidence-based programming, and advocacy efforts, as well as raising public awareness of available economic, legal, medical, and psychosocial services for GBV survivors and address the stigma attached to GBV survivors.
WAGE believes that when Jordanian CSOs have improved capacity to raise community awareness about GBV and provide holistic, individualized, client-centered, and trauma-informed services to women experiencing or at risk of GBV, then efforts to prevent GBV, protect survivors, and build their long-term resilience will be more effective and sustainable. This initiative aims to bolster local GBV providers’ technical expertise and coordination to ensure survivors can access and receive holistic services and referrals to address the constellation of challenges they face and build a better future.
The program's central goals are:
- To enhance the organizational and technical skills of Jordanian CSOs, including the creation of linkages with other organizations, to support women and girls at risk of or experiencing GBV in times of both relative stability and crisis.
- To provide holistic, individualized, and trauma-informed assistance to women and girls at risk of or experiencing GBV.
-To raise public awareness about GBV and available services.
