1) Objective

This Innovation Challenge is for piloting tech-based interventions relevant to Gender-based Violence (GBV) humanitarian programming, which have the potential to be scaled in the future. By tech-based we mean relating to and dependent on the practical use and application of technology.  Beyond the tech focus, this Challenge takes a broad framing to allow for the most promising GBV-related tech innovations to be supported. Applications must however be able to present the relevance of their intervention to at least one of the 26 priority gaps identified in our 2021 Gap Analysis Report. Some examples of gaps which may be relevant to tech-based interventions include:

  • Risk Mitigation:
    • Women and girls insufficiently engaged when identifying risks, developing mitigation plans and monitoring implementation
    • Lack of community ownership of risk mitigation activities
  • Response:
    • Lack of sustained support for those providing essential Psychosocial Support (PSS) and GBV case management services
    • Lack of coverage and survivor-centeredness of formal and informal legal and justice services, especially in remote locations
  • Prevention:
    • Lack of understanding and capacity to ensure that prevention programming is built on evidence-based behaviour change theory, and addresses social norms change at institutional and systemic levels
    • Lack of attention to GBV experienced by adolescent girls

2) Eligibility

The lead organisation is legally registered.

3) Location

Applications are accepted from all over the world.

4) Budget

Up to £150,000 in funding is available to each of up to four grantees. Additionally, there will also be non-financial innovation management support provided by the Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF).

5) Application

The application process is conducted online. The window for submitting Expressions of Interest is now open with a deadline of 16:00 BST (UTC+1) on Tuesday 27 June 2023.
