Jobs Opportunities at GIZ Junior Advisor As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
Gender based and sexualized violence (SGBV) remains a big challenge worldwide and in Tanzania and coordinated efforts are needed to enhance both prevention and response. The Access to Justice for Women and Children/ Society in Action for Equality (SAFE) programme, jointly implemented by the Ministry of Constitutional and Legal Affairs (MoCLA) and GIZ, aims at contributing towards the elimination of SGBV through improving the prerequisites for access to justice for women and children. To this end, it will work towards (1) identifying the legal and institutional causes that may impede access to justice, (2) strengthening the capacities of state actors to provide support services in cases of violence against women and children and (3) improving the support offerings of non-state actors at community level. In addition, a nation-wide campaign should raise awareness about the damaging effects of violence against women and children and create awareness and exchange about rights and rights violations as well as legal aid.
