WPE Community Worker – IRC International Rescue committee

BACKGROUND TO IRC
Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is one of the most prominent international organizations working in relief, rehabilitation, protection, post-conflict development, resettlement services and advocacy for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. Since 2007, IRC has worked with refugees and other vulnerable populations in Jordan. Programs under the leadership of the IRC’s Women’s Protection and Empowerment (WPE) unit focus on interventions that address Gender Based Violence (GBV), specifically violence against Syrian and Jordanian women and girls.
In coordination with the humanitarian community and the Government of Jordan, the IRC's women and girls assistance program for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians includes urban based assistance (Mafraq, Ramtha, Irbid) as well as technical support partnerships with national institutions and organizations in. The IRC's direct assistance programs help to ensure that women and girls and survivors of GBV have access to: primary and reproductive health care; case management, counselling and emotional support for survivors of gender based violence; Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) as well as cash assistance. Services are accessible through two clinics in Ramtha and Mafraq, three Women’s and Girls’ Centres in Mafraq, Ramtha and Irbid, three mixed spaces and mobile service delivery. The IRC works to ensure that these services are inclusive of survivors of GBV and women and girls with disabilities as well as specifically tailored for child survivors of GBV and adolescent girls. At a national level, the IRC is leading multiple capacity building and technical partnership initiatives alongside government ministries, UN agencies and organizations including inter agency case management trainings, clinical care for sexual assault survivors (CCSAS), and the roll out of the Inter Agency National Standard Operating procedures (SOPs) on GBV and Child Protection in Jordan.
