Au Congo, comment aider les victimes de violences sexuelles

Nous célébrons aujourd'hui la journée internationale pour l'élimination de la violence faite aux femmes. Pourtant, il y a bien peu à célébrer: des millions de femmes dans le monde sont battues, violées, torturées, réduites à l'état d'esclavage, achetées et vendues. Il y a bien peu à célébrer également dans l'est du Congo où les hostilités ont repris et où le viol est depuis longtemps utilisé comme arme de guerre.

L'hôpital Panzi, à Bukavu, a vu des milliers de visages défiler dans ses couloirs. Grâce à la générosité des citoyens européens, une équipe de professionnels dévoués vient en aide aux victimes de violences sexuelles.

Theories of change (ToCs) – will the idea stick around and shape future thinking on development, or slide back into

My favourite ToC cartoon

the bubbling morass of aid jargon, forgotten and unlamented? Last week some leading ToCistas at ODI, LSE and The Asia Foundation and a bunch of other organisations spent a whole day taking stock, and the discussion highlighted strengths, weaknesses and some looming decisions.

How international NGOs choose corporate partners

How international NGOs choose corporate partners | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it

The days of development organizations decrying collaboration with the private sector appear to be in the rearview mirror.

For some international nongovernmental organizations, private sector partnerships are a relatively new practice developed in the past five or 10 years, while others have engaged for decades. For those with a history of working with corporations, the nature of their relationships has been evolving: traditional corporate social responsibility or financial engagements are giving way to more sophisticated, longer-term partnerships.
