Informed by Empowered Aid’s evidence-based results, this self-paced course is free and available to all learners interested in mitigating the risk of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) in aid distribution, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), and programming. It is grounded in principles and tools for increasing aid actors’ and researchers’ engagement with diverse women, girls, and other members of crisis-affected communities and applying the expertise they share.
Through interactive learning activities, case studies, and video interviews with the Empowered Aid team, learners will gain knowledge on the Empowered Aid findings, recommendations, and participatory processes so they can better listen to women and girls, turn their knowledge into action, and increase their safety in aid distribution.
The course was co-designed and co-created by all of those who took part in the research, and we are excited to share our experiences and resources through this virtual platform! To access the findings reports, policy briefs, toolkits, training materials, and more, visit the Empowered Aid Resources page.
For learners who would like to engage in peer-to-peer learning and exchange, you can indicate when you have enrolled in the course if you would like to join a live discussion group hosted by Empowered Aid team members, who will support you to apply the principles and tools you learn about in your everyday work.
