We feel the need to start problem analysis and brainstorming together with other stakeholder right from the start. We also feel the need to share our thoughts with others and see overlap and points of connection and collaboration. By joining DCHI we will enter a network of like minded actors and contribute to collective efforts for innovation
Innovative solution(s) we are working on
- Empower2Protect: DRA funded innovation project in which SGBV is countered by women wearing a bracelet. The bracelet can be activated when a potential SGBV incident happens; the bracelet will eject a strong annoying odor which has proven to confuse and distract assailants. This gives the women the chance to escape.
- Build your own Buddy: DRA funded action research innovation project. Children and parent together make a stuffed animal/doll based on local stories. This is a proven method for children to process trauma.
- Addressing harmful social norms in humanitarian settings through a faith and community approach. This pilot will adapt an innovative sexual and gender-based (SGBV) prevention approach successfully applied in development settings into a model suitable for humanitarian contexts.
- Researching the huge potential of drones in humanitarian disaster response. Drones use can results in greatly enhanced mapping and M&E capacity and impact assessments. Also, delivery of high value payload e.g. medicines/vaccins offer great advantages for the humanitarian sector.
