February 19, 2021 Website Cover (2)

The Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW) and UN Women are partnering on an initiative to end violence against women with disabilities, implemented by Women with Disabilities Development Foundation (WDDF) in Bangladesh.

ARROW is now looking for a consultant (local) based in Bangladesh (preferably in Dhaka or a nearby area) who will take on the responsibility of facilitating a Training of Trainers (ToT) using the Training Manual on Disability Rights, Gender and Sexual and Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR) in Bangladesh.

The ToT is tentatively scheduled between 29th March 2021 and 2nd April 2021. The training will be a residential one involving at least 15 participants with disabilities following the guidelines/ standard operating procedures (SOP) related to COVID-19 precautionary measures set by the health authorities, with close monitoring by our partner in Bangladesh, Women with Disabilities Development Foundation (WDDF).

Preference will be given to those with previous experience in carrying out similar trainings/workshops on disability rights, gender and SRHR. Knowledge on disability rights issues in Bangladesh, particularly in the context of sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls with disabilities, will be an added advantage. Key duties will include:

  • Development of a 5-day ToT programme based on the training manual developed by ARROW in English and in Bangla, in coordination with ARROW and WDDF.
  • Facilitation of the ToT in Bangla and finalisation of activities, group exercises and panel discussions for each agenda of the programme in consultation with ARROW and WDDF along with a list of required materials and handouts for each session.
  • Identification of resource persons, guest speakers if required in coordination with ARROW and WDDF.
  • Post – ToT, provide a follow-up plan with the participants.
