Types of Violence - Lebanon

SenseMaker as a Monitoring and Evaluation Tool for Gender-Based Violence Programs and Services in Lebanon

25.02.2019 / Created by ARCGE

SenseMaker® is a mixed qualitative/quantitative data collection tool used to empower individuals to anonymously record and interpret their own stories about their experiences of accessing a GBV service.

In collecting these stories, Queen’s University and its partners aimed to examine the feasibility and added value of using SenseMaker® to generate timely mixed methods results and a more nuanced understanding about experiences accessing gender-based violence (GBV) programmes.

This report is based on data collected by ABAAD, Akaar Network for Development (AND), Caritas Lebanon, International Medical Corps (IMC) Lebanon, IRC Lebanon, and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA) in Lebanon. After pilot testing and refining the survey earlier in 2018, these six GBV service providers asked women and girls attending their programs across five different sites in Lebanon (Beirut/Mount Lebanon, Tripoli, Akkar, Beqaa, South Lebanon) to complete the SenseMaker survey. Over a ten-week period, 198 self-interpreted stories were collected.
