    Here's What It's Really Like To Be A Refugee Mom — & Here's What You Can Do To Help

    Displacement due to conflict or natural disaster can often disrupt social systems and tear families apart, Jennifer Schlecht, Senior Program Officer of Reproductive Health Programs at the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC), told Romper.

    "When a mother chooses to carry her baby on a boat across the Mediterranean, to flee across dangerous terrain, or travel in a truck to cross the dessert, all to resettle in a camp or unfamiliar city, the desperation they must feel is undeniable," she said. "As a mother, there is not an ounce of me that can imagine the ache one must feel in your heart when making these risky choices."

    Tightening of Borders Makes Women Invisible Along Balkan Refugee Route

    As borders have tightened along the western Balkan route to Europe, more lone female refugees are arriving in Serbia having experienced violence and trafficking. Many who want to continue their journeys are using even riskier routes and never appear in official data.

    Cash Payments During Crisis Can Give Women More Power at Home

    A growing number of NGOs are adding cash assistance to their aid programming, often targeting the support to women. Some groups find that giving money can boost women’s financial autonomy, but others say handing over cash is only a small part of the solution.

    [LISTEN] Where do cash-based interventions fit in programming for women’s protection and empowerment?

    Livelihoods support can provide a route to economic well-being with the means of moving beneficiaries on the path from survival to long-term recovery. Cash-based interventions are one type in the form of direct financial assistance. How can we acknowledge and mitigate the risks of cash for survivors of gender-based violence? What are the models to consider? In this episode, we talked with Tenzin Manell of the Women’s Refugee Commission to hear more.

    [LISTEN] How can we integrate GBV programming and cash-based interventions: Jordan Case Study

    In this episode we explored further the idea of integration GBV programming and cash-based interventions by talking about the experience of Women's Refugee Commission, International Rescue Committee, and Mercy Corps in Jordan.

    Call to move from siloing gender issues towards integrating approach in cash programming

    There was a discussion at the Cash and Gender event, co-led with ActionAid, CARE, UN Women and the Women’s Refugee Commission, on how social protection systems can be gender-transformative in the long-term. The event, which Development Pathways technical team participated in, touched upon how it is not enough for governments to put in place cash transfers for women from low-income families in developing countries to enter and access the market.

    Clearing the Fog around Cash and Gender-Based Violence

    You know how after a shower the bathroom mirror is foggy and when you raise your fist up to wipe away the condensation, all of a sudden the opaque gray dissolves into a clearer image? It’s not quite yet a crystal-clear reflection, but it’s close? This is where we are as a humanitarian community addressing the integration of cash-based interventions (CBIs) and gender-based violence (GBV) prevention, mitigation, and response.

    Gender Equality and Self-Reliance: Interlinked Components of Refugee Women’s Protection and Economic Empowerment

    This blog was cross-posted from Medium.

    This week the world is at Women Deliver — the largest convening ever held focused on gender equality. While we all know that making progress on gender equality has been problematic in the world’s most stable, economically advanced societies, how much more so in states plagued by conflict and displacement. In humanitarian response we seldom discuss the role of women’s livelihoods as critical to advancing gender equality and we seldom promote gender equality as a means to tackle and mitigate risks of gender-based violence. The silo-ing of these efforts and interventions is a zero-sum gain.

    Leveraging Cash and Voucher Assistance in Gender-based Violence Prevention and Response

    A wide-open opportunity for change in humanitarian settings


    Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) is now a common tool in humanitarian action used to meet the diverse needs of those displaced by crisis and conflict, and it is on the rise. Preliminary findings from the 3rd Grand Bargain Cash Workshop this May suggest an estimated 60% scale-up of total cash and voucher delivery from 2016 to 2018; this translates to around US$4.5 billion in CVA (including programming costs) delivered in 2018. Despite a push by several humanitarian actors since 2015, its use for protection outcomes – including to support the prevention of and response to gender-based violence (GBV) – trails behind that of all other sectors.
