Integrating Cash Assistance into Gender-Based Violence Case Management to Support GBV Survivors and Individuals at Risk in Jordan

With support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and CARE are leading an initiative on behalf of the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Task Team on Cash for Protection (TTC4P) to expand access among field-level practitioners to the requisite knowledge, skills, guidance, and tools to integrate cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and gender-based violence (GBV) programming in humanitarian settings. This and other case studies focusing on CVA for GBV outcomes in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA) accompany training materials, workshops, webinars, and podcasts that document programmatic and operational learning. Together, these resources contribute to local, national, and global learning on integrating CVA within GBV programming, as well as improved practice by a range of humanitarian stakeholders, including humanitarian and development professionals, national government agencies, and international donors. This case study covers a project that took place from January 2020 to December 2021 in Mafraq, Amman, and Zarqa and aimed to build livelihood resilience and prevent and respond to protection threats faced by crisis-affected women, girls, men, and boys.
