PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND CONTEXT
ADD International Cambodia, in partnership with 2 local NGOs and 5 women with disability forums, has been implementing the project Preventing Violence Against Women and Girls with Disabilities in Cambodia: A community Mobilization Model (UNTF Model). This is a 3-year project which started in September 2018 and will end in August 2021. This Model project is building on learnings from the SASA! project approach by the organisation Raising Voices in Uganda, adapting a community mobilization process to address violence against women and girls with disabilities.
The project’s goal is to support women and girls with disabilities, including those most marginalised in six districts of Battambang, Svay Rieng, Kampong Speu, Kampot and Tbong Khmum provinces experience less violence in their families and from caregivers.
Women-led organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) and disabled women’s networks have been leading primary prevention interventions targeting women and girls with disabilities, including the most vulnerable. Self-help groups (SHG) of persons with disabilities, caregivers, other family members, their communities and key duty bearers were expected to increase their capacity to challenge inequitable social norms that tolerate violence and to more effectively identify and prevent violence against women and girls with disabilities in their communities. The project planned to use the learning to promote the need for, and approaches to, expanding primary prevention of violence against women and girls with disabilities. As the project is due to end soon, this necessitate an end line evaluation by external consultant(s).
PURPOSE OF THE EVALUATION.
The purpose of the evaluation of the UNTF Project is to assess its impact, how the project has achieved the above stated outcomes, extract the main learning as well as any unintended impact on EVAWG .
The findings of Evaluation will be presented to stakeholders in target areas, particularly to OPD and NGO partners, and the report will be shared with government agencies, particularly MoWA and DAC, UN bodies, national and international organizations working on gender-based violence and EVAW, mainly UN Women and ACCESS Programme and GADNet, among others. Some of the findings and lessons learned will be used as inputs for the development of policy recommendations and national plans – National Gender Equality Policy, NDSPs, new NAPVAW.
