Strengthening the PSEAH capacities of local partners in Cambodia – Cambodia

Johanniter International Assistance undertakes to prevent and respond to the PSEAH. Johanniter has zero tolerance towards SEAH and all forms of harm towards children and adolescents. Johanniter is in the process of implementing a grant agreement with two partner organizations, namely Bandos Komar Association (BK) and Child Rights Foundation (CRF). With financial support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), these two partners (BK and CRF) are undertaking a project named CLIMATE – Building the resilience and adaptive capacity of children and communities for a safe and livable future”. The project includes a capacity development component, strengthening both partners organizationally and programmatically. Johanniter is therefore looking for a consultant to help partners achieve the minimum standards for PSEAH and create an organizational roadmap for this process. Johanniter meets IASC Minimum Operating Standards and is a member of the CHS Alliance.

Johanniter is looking for an international consultant to help the above partners become safer organizations. Both organizations have completed the IASC PSEA self-assessment tool.
