The project focuses on strengthening unity, skills and knowledge of migrant workers to take an active part in advocating for their right to justice. At the same time the project will work with judicial officials, legal professionals and government officials to improve awareness of the legal frameworks to protect migrant workers and allow them to seek redress for violations of Bangladeshi law. This project builds on learning of the 3 Year EU funded EIDHR project (2018-2021) which was working to improve access to justice for migrant workers in Bangladesh.

Girls Education Challenge

Voluntary Service Overseas

Through improved access to quality education along the education continuum, Sisters for Sisters’ Education (SfS Education) envisions that marginalised adolescent girls from four districts in rural Nepal – Surkhet, Parsa, Dhading and Lamjung – will transition from basic to secondary education, and secondary to upper secondary, empowered to leave school to either secure a sustainable livelihood or continue with education. They will be equipped with skills, bolstered by strong learning outcomes that improve employability, enhance confidence and self-esteem to act as leaders, and enable them to influence and control their own sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR). To achieve this, SfS Education aims to create secure, conducive learning environments for marginalized adolescent girls, with schools, teachers, parents and communities more actively engaged in helping girls to excel and committed to supporting girls’ education through addressing the socio-economic barriers that prevent adolescent girls from achieving learning outcomes and transitioning through key education milestones and beyond. The project design maximises gains from VSO’s SfS GEC-1 project by working with the same cohort of girls who are currently in basic or lower secondary education or have left school, preparing them to make good education and health choices with the best chances of making a sustainable living. The transition points the project aims to address are: • From primary to lower secondary education • From lower-secondary to upper secondary education • Into education for out-of-school girls • Into vocational training, further education or sustainable livelihood for older out-of-school girls and girls leaving school Underpinning all the educational transition points above, the project will also support transition from adolescence to adulthood for the girls from a SRH perspective, boosting girls’ self-worth so they do not only see themselves (or are seen) as wives or mothers and recognise that they have a choice when it comes to deciding when to get married, have children and how they would choose to plan their futures.

Intergrated Programme for Strengthening Security and Justice

Voluntary Service Overseas

STRENGTHENING ACCESS TO HOLISTIC, GENDER RESPONSIVE, AND ACCOUNTABLE JUSTICE IN NEPAL (SAHAJ) Problem Statement Deep-rooted social and gender norms that perpetrate unequal gendered power dynamics at inter-personal, family and community levels in Nepal hamper women and girls’ ability to challenge the widespread social acceptance of violence, and negatively influence their reporting and service-seeking behaviour. The lack of a conducive environment for service-seeking behaviours and poor knowledge of available security and justice services, coupled with constraints to the adequate and inclusive provision of such services, further exacerbate underreporting of GBV incidents in a context of mutual mistrust between communities and security and justice service providers (JSP). The project has been designed to provide learning and base of evidence on what works to change social norms around GBV in a politically and administratively evolving context such as the one Nepal currently offers, in its shift towards federalism. Operationally-relevant research underlies this project to capture learning and produce knowledge about what works to inform development actors and donors in three domains: 1) gender transformative social norms approach selection, 2) intervention design and integration, and 3) project delivery and adaptation. SAHAJ will test social norms change packages of interventions in multiple project localities and document what works to influence social norms change. Considering its limited implementation period, it is expected that the project won’t be able to gather comprehensive data on social norms change results, but will collect and analyse indications of progress towards social norms change.

Bank Asia Limited-SP022 (Growing Together )

Voluntary Service Overseas

The project addresses the window 2 challenge by establishing a smart agent banking channel for rural Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs),using technology coupled with a robust business support system that builds capacity of the participating enterprises to ensure their maximum economic success. One of the fundamental challenges for small holder farmers in Bangladesh is access to business finance. For too long the development sector has assumed that access to micro-finance benefits farmers. Often NGO led micro-finance offers more choice and reduced interest rates against the appalling interest rates charged through money lenders in the black market, a source of debt financing farmers have historically resorted to in the absence of retail opportunity and asset collateral. Traditional micro finance does not however move farmers and micro entrepreneurs away from cycles of short term debt and into cycles of long-term investment. lt doesn't sustainably change their finances to manage cropping seasons.
