    In the GBV project in which I’ve been involved, we consulted with our beneficiaries female migrant factory workers in the periurban factories at the different stages of the project cycle: consultations during the designing of the project, consultations for training contents, messages, and IEC (Information, Education, Communication) materials for campaigns and evaluation of the project activities. The collection of feedback during the activities and realignment of the activities at different phases of the project showed that we’ve been accountable to women beneficiaries.
    A rapid gender analysis was done, following the set guidelines, during proposal development and during planning for implementation at the community level is a gender-power analysis.
    During the capacity building and training sessions, men, women, and persons with disability from respective factories are invited regardless of their position in the factory. This follows the inclusive and intersectional principle.
    When we distribute the dignity kits, we include torch lights and sanitary napkins that women can utilize to protect themselves and protect their dignity.
    All the persons involved in the project follow strictly the PSEA IASC six principles, our organization’s SOPs and guidelines are revised to integrate these guidelines.
