Capturing the Change: Measuring the impact of considering gender inequality and gender-based violence in the fight against hunger
Since 2013, Action Against Hunger has been working to become a gender sensitive organization. This includes the development and implementation of a set of Gender Minimum Standards, the core requirements we hold all offices accountable to when it comes to considering and addressing gender issues in our work.
In 2017 we launched a two-year project funded by the US Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (BPRM) looking at ways to mitigate and prevent gender-based violence (GBV) in our programs through focused GBV mainstreaming initiatives in three pilot countries – Bangladesh, South Sudan and Mauritania.
HOW DO WE CAPTURE THE CHANGE?
We started to wonder – are we improving the accountability of humanitarian nutrition organizations to mitigate and prevent GBV? What changes are felt and observed in the lives of the people we work with? What about our staff?
Action Against Hunger developed the Capturing the Change* methodology to better understand the intended and unintended changes as we work to enhance the accountability of nutrition organizations to mitigate and prevent GBV.
The following stories were collected to help us understand changes experienced as a result of trainings held in 2018.
