Through the ADVANTAGE IDIQ, EnCompass was engaged by USAID to design a course on how to integrate GBV prevention into USAID programming activities. The course, Integrating Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response across Sectors, is a blended program that engages participants at intervals over a 4-month period. The training includes virtual and face-to-face components, as well as practicum activities and a mentoring program.
EnCompass works with USAID’s Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev) to update, deliver, and evaluate a blended learning program comprised of four courses for USAID/Washington and Mission staff worldwide:
As part of the program to monitor USAID activities in northern Afghanistan, EnCompass is subcontracting to MSI to provide technical assistance on gender sensitive monitoring and verification tools as well as designing and delivering training to local partners on the USAID gender policy requirements. EnCompass conducted an analysis of implementing partners’ knowledge of USAID policy and conducted a training for staff and data collectors to prepare for gender sensitive monitoring and verification processes.
For the USAID Missions in Pakistan and Afghanistan, EnCompass is providing training and technical support to help integrate USAID gender policy into programs and into all elements of the program cycle. Technical assistance includes conducting gender analysis and incorporating findings of gender analyses into solicitations, as well as project designs, performance management plans, and evaluations.
Through this five-year blanket purchase agreement, EnCompass is supporting the Foreign Service Institute’s Leadership and Management School in its efforts to develop career leaders and managers in the Department of State and the larger foreign affairs community and offer mandated leadership training for mid through senior grade levels. EnCompass delivers leadership development courses on a variety of topics, consulting and organizational development services, and curriculum design, assessment and evaluation support.
EnCompass serves in Gender and Quality Improvement advisor roles for the AIDSFree project, which aims to improve the effectiveness of high-impact, evidence-based HIV interventions, and accelerate the speed with which these interventions are brought to scale at the country-level. EnCompass provides capacity development and technical support to USAID missions, host-country governments, and HIV/AIDS implementers as a subcontractor to John Snow, Inc.
EnCompass co-facilitated a skills-based, practical training course providing USAID staff with guidance on implementing the Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy, in order to identify best practices and lessons learned in integrating gender considerations across USAID’s Program Cycle.
EnCompass is responsible for multiple capacity building activities for the Africa Indoor Residual Spraying (AIRS) II program. Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) is a highly effective tool in reducing malaria transmission. This program is part of the President's Malaria Initiative, which helps 19 host-countries in Africa and one region in Southeast Asia implement IRS programs and assess their effectiveness.
