Description and results


This project aims to reduce sexual violence in Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan. The goal is to deliver the Empowerment Transformation Training (ETT) Program, which is a successful and rigorously tested rape prevention approach that targets female and male youths in schools and community-based organizations. Project activities include: (1) a needs assessment and curriculum development for South Sudan and Somalia; (2) capacity building for training of trainers; (3) monitoring and evaluation; and (4) ETT curriculum delivery to over 25,000 girls and boys, and young women and men (ages 10-22) in designated schools, community-based organizations, churches and mosques.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved effectiveness of programs and their consistent administration to help prevent sexual and gender-based violence and radicalization; and (2) strengthened community response to sexual violence, negative gender stereotypes and radicalization in schools, camps and other high risk areas.

Results achieved

Results achieved include: (1) the successful design of a randomized control trial in Kenya, Somalia, and South Sudan; (2) to the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) prevention methods have undergone a randomized control trial to test their effectiveness to reduce SGBV in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS); (3) a baseline was established for key indicators in Kenya, Somalia, and South Sudan to help assess the effectiveness of these prevention methods; (4) in South Sudan, the partner adapted their school-based training to develop a community-based approach curriculum. This comes as a response to the growing need to prevent SGBV in the community at large; (5) 113 school teachers were trained in Empowerment Transformation Training (ETT) SGBV prevention in South Sudan; (6) 53,595 boys and girls received ETT on SGBV prevention; and (7) over 12,000 of these beneficiaries are voluntarily participating in the multi-county randomized control trial to better inform a broader community of practice about what works to prevent SGBV in FCAS.
