The objective is for the five partnering organisations to take collective action to protect from sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment and corruption in the context of implementation of civic and humanitarian interventions in Tunisia, Jordan, Ghana and Somaliland. The intervention will use the methodology of participatory design thinking and an experimental approach in developing a contextualized code of conduct, locally adapted reporting systems and training concepts for staff and volunteers. The intervention will have a particular focus on volunteers who through GAME and partners are trained to facilitate activities for children and youth in their local communities. It is crucial that they are aware of their obligations and rights, and are encouraged to speak up about harassment and exploitation if it occurs. An outcome of the intervention will be training modules that will be adapted in future volunteer trainings, strengthening awareness of their rights among youth.
