medica mondiale e. V. is an international aid and women’s rights organisation supporting women and girls in war and conflict regions since over 20 years. medica mondiale provides medical consultation, psychosocial and legal counselling and protection as well as programmes promoting the generation of income – both through its own projects and in co-operation with local women’s organisations.
At a political level, medica mondiale actively advocates the enforcement of women’s rights and interests and demands consistent punishment of crimes as well as effective protection, justice and political ownership for women survivors of violence. Since 2007, medica mondiale reinforces the competencies of professionals and activists through qualification programs strengthening psychosocial skills, stress- and traumasensitivity in the legal, medical and economic support for women and girls, organisational development and leadership skills.

Female Trainer in Feminist Family Counselling in the Context of SGBV (Consultancy Contract)
medica mondiale started working in Afghanistan in 2002 on a range of projects to benefit women and girls. In 2011, the Afghan workers took over medica mondiale’s work and founded an independent Afghan NGO in Kabul: Medica Afghanistan – Women Support Organisation. Until today, medica mondiale continues to work very closely with Medica Afghanistan, providing both advice and funding.
As part of this cooperation, medica mondiale and Medica Afghanistan collaborate on a project for the „Empowerment of Afghan women and girls through legal, social and psychosocial services“, funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and medica mondiale. The project has a grant period of 9 months and runs from 01.04.2018 to 31.12.2018. The overall project objective is to empower Afghan women and girls affected by sexualised and gender based violence and to improve their wellbeing and their access to the formal justice system. In total, the project targets 1,200 women and girls, 78 participants in peer support groups, 15 families and 150 students. 5,700 family and community members related to the project’s direct clients are targeted indirectly by the project.
To reach the overall objective, the project defines three specific outcomes:
1) Legal provisions furthering the rights of women and girls survivors of violence are improved and enforced and general awareness is raised
2) Afghan women and girls in Kabul, Balkh and Samangan have been empowered through trauma and gender sensitive legal, social and psychosocial services
3) The organisational and technical capacities of Medica Afghanistan to advance women’s rights and disseminate a stress and trauma sensitive approach is raised
Under outcome 3, the project intends to strengthen the Psychosocial and Health Program (PSHP) team in its technical capacity regarding family counselling through training.
In coordination with medica mondiale staff in Germany (Technical Advisor on Trauma Work in Afghanistan and Project Officer Afghanistan), the consultant prepares and conducts a training on family counselling with a clear commitment to women’s empowerment which is contextualised and adapted to the needs of the Psychosocial and Health Program team of Medica Afghanistan. The consultant conducts the training in India in November 2018 and documents it.
