    ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) is implementing the Volunteering in Humanitarian Aid- Hosting Organisation (VolinHA-HO) project since September 2015. The project is funded by European Commission under the EU Aid Volunteers (EUAV) Initiative. This is a consortium project of eight INGOs - three from Europe, two from South Asia, two from Africa and one from Latin America. The project aims at preparing future EUAV projects where humanitarian and volunteering organisations would share a common culture, where EU volunteers would fit into existing local volunteering dynamics and articulate with existing response mechanisms, especially in enhancing disaster risk reduction.

    Apart from increasing capacity of local volunteers on humanitarian action, a vital objective of the project is to build the capacity of Hosting and Sending organisations to get certification from EUAV and to develop EU Aid Volunteer Deployment projects. Hence, AAB plans to conduct a scoping study aiming to identify gaps in humanitarian response preparedness at local and national level; and to identify potential area for engaging EU Aid Volunteers.

    For the above mentioned purpose, ActionAid Bangladesh will be recruiting a Consultant/Consulting Firm to conduct the Scoping Study on behalf of AAB.

    MMWW (Making Market Work for Women) aims to strengthen food security in target areas by promoting women agro-entrepreneurship through improving women’s access to nutrition, sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care and market transformation. In Bangladesh, nutrition and SRH care are interlinked problems: poor food intake causes malnourishment, which leads to poor health and poor SRH, perpetuates the intergenerational cycle of undernourishment. Deficiencies in nutrition and SRH care result in poor labor productivity and market performance. This phenomenon further exacerbates the poor nutrition and health status. Especially women and girls suffer the most since (1) they eat last and least, (2) approx. two-third of the girls are married off before they turn 18, and teenage pregnancy rate is quite high, and (3) women are restricted by gendered social norms to participate in economic activities. To break this cycle, interventions are needed for improving access to nutritious food, access to quality SRH care, access to women-friendly markets and freedom for women to decide over their bodies and lives. ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB), therefore, has decided to work with female agro-entrepreneurs, government institutions responsible for service delivery, boys and girls clubs as well as market committees.ActionAid Bangladesh is implementing “Making Market Work for Women (MMWW)” project supported by Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in partnership with 4 local NGOs namely -Grameen Alo(Gabtoli, Bogra -7 unions), SKS Foundation (Shundorganj, Gaibandha- 9 unions), Shaptagram Nari Shanghati Parishad(Sadar, Modhukhali – Faridpur – 9 unions) & Shushilan(Golachipa, Patuakhali – 5 unions). The overall objective of the project is “Strengthening Food Security in Bangladesh by Making Market Work for Women” through promoting sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) and nutrition situation of targeted women entrepreneur, their families, and the wider community, and bringing sustainable and systemic changes in existing market behaviours that will enable women to perform in the agro-value chain.
