According to bank documents, the project objective is to provide selected social services, short-term cash for services, and online employment opportunities to the most vulnerable population in Gaza.
The project has four components:
Component 1: Cash for Services to enhance psychosocial support provision in Gaza. This component will provide tailored training and sub-grants to selected NGOs to implement Cash for Service (C4S) sub-projects aimed to provide MHPSS and other relevant health services to communities affected by the recurrent outbreaks of violence in Gaza, including the recent May 2021 conflict. Services will include mental health and psychosocial support through either direct interventions or prevention activities. Services provided will be mostly targeted towards women and children.
Component 2: Support to youth empowerment through e-work (e-work). Replicating the approach taken by the Gaza Emergency Cash for Work and Self-Employment Support Project (P167726) this component will finance support for target youth to become e-workers/online freelancers and will aim to ensure significant reach to women beneficiaries to address existing gender gaps in the labor market and disproportionate impact of crisis on women. The type of e-work to be supported by the project includes both complex and simple tasks (e.g. software development, graphic design, media production, content development, website design, animations, e-marketing, translation, voice over, virtual assistance, labelling photos or videos, describing products, transcribing scanned documents, data gathering, answering calls). These tasks are linked to larger projects through online networks and platforms at the regional and global levels. Online freelancers can work on their own or as part of local freelancing companies.
Component 3: Project Management and Monitoring. This component will strengthen the NGO Development Center’s (NDC’s) capacity for Project management, monitoring, and evaluation through financing of office equipment, consultants’ services, including audit, training, and incremental operating.
Component 4: Contingent Emergency Response Component
