Project Title: enhance GBV mitigation through capacity building

Target Beneficiaries: 235 women and adult girls


Sexual violence has been adapted, register rape cases, protect sexual abuse and harassment, prevent exploitation, and forced marriage and etc


Community awareness campaigns on domestic violence, to educate community members about the prevalence of abuse, to encourage people to take action to promote social change, and alert survivors to the options and resources that are available to them.

GBV programming (i.e. prevention and response) and risk mitigation across all sectors is lifesaving and an institutional priority for the Organization. We work together with partners, governments and communities to address GBV and to implement quality programming to prevent, mitigate and respond.

Our primary purpose as SCC is to safeguard the rights and well-being of people who have been forced to flee. SCC supports IDPs and Poor hosting communities in Somalia to uphold the responsibility to ensure that PoC are protected against GBV and prioritizes two mutually reinforcing objectives to address GBV across all Operations:
  • Risk of GBV is reduced for all persons of concern
  • All survivors have adequate and timely access to quality services that meet their needs

GBV disproportionately affects women and girls, and in situations of displacement their risk of exposure to GBV increases. SCC is committed to continuously strengthening coordination and programming to protect women and girls from GBV and advocates for adequate resources to increase the implementation of quality specialized programmes for women and girls.

SCC refers to immediate interventions that address survivors’ physical safety, health concerns, psychosocial needs, and access to justice, in line with the survivor-centred approach. 

The provision of multi-sectoral services and assistance to all survivors of GBV contributes to ensuring people’s safety, improving physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health, and facilitating access to justice. 

All survivors of GBV, including survivors of SEA perpetrated by humanitarian workers, have the right to immediate life-saving protection and GBV services.
