Cash and Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Course - CARE

Cash and Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Online Training

The Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) online training is a six-week facilitated course targeting protection, gender, and GBV specialists who are planning to or are encouraged to use CVA in their program to deliver their responses.

Background

The course is structured around the GBV case management approach and includes five topics mirroring the project cycle. The course covers the key skills required to prepare, design, implement, and monitor projects designed to achieve GBV outcomes using CVA. The course builds on the existing Cash and Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Compendium face to face training, developed based on the Cash and Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Compendium.

With support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Women’s Refugee Commission and CARE partnered to expand access among field-level practitioners to the requisite knowledge, skills, guidance, and tools to integrate CVA and GBV programming in humanitarian settings, with a focus on remote management settings. The translation of course materials into French and Spanish were supported by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance.
