The logic of intervention is two -fold: a. providing canoe (read transport) vouchers to vulnerable community members ensures means to flee insecurity and in particular sexual and gender based violence without fear of vulnerability or exposure to further risks on the dangerous escape route while b. the formation and training of community led Reception Committees will allow the quick and rapid access to humanitarian and referral services in Nyal and surrounds. While there is no formal operational partner, the project will promote and benefit from local resources (canoeists), leadership (Reception Committees) and knowledge (protection risks, services) and will be overseen by a dedicated Oxfam Protection Team in coordination with local actors Universal Development Organisation (UNIDO) and Non -Violent Peace Force as well as the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Oxfam has extensive experience in implementing a well refined community led Protection model of which the Reception Committees represent the emergency phase. Implementation is informed by the Centrality of Protection, new IASC Guidelines for Integrating Gender Based Violence (GBV) Interventions in Humanitarian Action, Do No Harm Principle and the Core Humanitarian Standard.
