NCA/SC Joint Programme in Somalia

During the period 2020-2024, the joint NCA & SC programme to end FGM & CEFM will be in its third phase of implementation  to build on the efforts and gains made in the previous phases while expanding to other locations for wider outreach and coverage. The overall goal of the joint programme is to contribute towards the elimination of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM/C) and Child Early Forced Marriage (CEFM) in targeted communities.

The joint programme is guided by a Theory of Change (ToC) to respond to four outcomes areas, which include:

Dominant social norms transformed to protect girls and women from FGM and CEFM.

Women and girls at risk of violence and survivors of FGM have access to appropriate and adequate medical, psychosocial support (PSS), and livelihood services.

Women and girls are empowered to realize their rights and protect themselves from FGM and CEFM.

Laws and Policies to end FGM and CEFM are enacted and enforced.

NCA and SC will continue to use various strategies such as community conversations to discuss and explore local solutions that will lead to abandonment of harmful practices; engage influential religious leaders to advocate for abandonment; media to foster awareness and sensitize communities, and capacity-building of community actors to advocate against practices. Engaging men and boys as change agents to influence

their peers will continue as a key strategy along with new models promoting gender equality and economic empowerment. The programme will be implemented in seven districts, i.e. Bosasso, Gardo, Garowe and Eyl in Puntland state, and Garbaharey, Belet Hawa and Luuq in Gedo in Jubaland state.

NCA works in partnership with KAALO Aid for development, a local NGO in Puntland (Garowe and Eyl) and SEDHURO in Gedo (Garbaharrey, Luuq and Belet Hawa). Save the Children will implement the programme in Bosaso and Qardo districts through partnership with Tadammun Social Society.
