Consultancy, KAP survey on Gender Based Violence in Sesheke, Mwandi and Petauke Districts

Women and Law in Southern Africa Education Trust-Zambia (WLSA) is seeking for consultants to conduct a Knowledge, Attitudes, Practice and prevalence (KAP) survey on women, survivors and victims of gender based violence.
Terms of Reference – Consultancy, KAP survey on Gender Based Violence in Sesheke, Mwandi and Petauke Districts.
1. Background and Context
Women and Law in Southern Africa, Research Trust-Zambia (WLSA) is part of a regional organization working in seven countries in Southern Africa. WLSA’s mission is to contribute to socio-economic, political and legal advancement of women specifically within the Southern African countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. This is achieved through a collaborative strategic and action oriented research in the social and legal field and; lobbying for legal reforms and policy changes on laws and practices which discriminate and disadvantage women and children.
WLSA’s mandate is to make the law work for women and survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV). WLSA also seeks to improve the lives of women, survivors and victims of GBV by influencing formal and informal legal and policy reforms for the creation of an environment of gender equality, where women’s right to a life free of violence is respected, upheld and protected.
In order to ensure access to justice of women, survivors and victims of GBV, WLSA seeks to improve the means through which the affected are able to use justice institutions to obtain solutions to their common problems.
Therefore, to promote Access to Justice for GBV survivors, WLSA and Norwegian Church Aid with financial support from European Union will implement a Stop GBV and access to justice project to contribute to increased access to justice for survivors and victims of GBV in Eastern and Western provinces of Zambia. The action builds on the existing legal and policy frameworks such as the Anti-Gender Based Violence Act (2011), Revised National Gender Policy (2015) and the National Action Plan on GBV 2008-2013. It also recognizes various efforts and interventions, both past and present that have been initiated by the Government, civil society organizations and other non-state actors on prevention and response to Gender Based Violence (GBV).
GBV is not an isolated problem in Zambia but a widespread occurrence that has a lasting negative impact on the lives of a lot of people especially women and girls. GBV against women has been viewed as a hindrance to attainment of gender equality as well as realization of social and economic goals of its victims.
Furthermore, the principle law which deals with violence of one person on another in Zambia is the Anti-GBV Act of 2011. Though not exclusive to women and girls, GBV principally affects women and children more across all cultures. Violence may be physical, emotional, psychological, economical and socio-cultural.
