"I believe that the best way to know the needs and solutions for individuals and communities – and to design and assess programmes – is through direct dialogue with persons targeted for humanitarian action. Only when we involve them in programme design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation can we ensure that our programmes are ensuring their safety and well-being, building on their strengths and capacities, and preventing further harm.
Chin-Mae (Asian Male in early 40s, slight Asian accent, ~2.5 hours recording time):
"Basically, my role is to question how things are being planned and implemented to ensure that the needs of women, girls, boys and men are being met. I tell people I am here to help technical staff see things with a gender lens. When you look at the data through a gender lens, you often find gaps in the information. So I help coordinate the gender-awareness efforts."
Bokushi (34 yr old Woman with Hatuk accent, 1 hour recording time):
"My crops are mostly gone and I have very little else, other than some tools, jewellery and livestock, some of which I've already had to sell just to survive. Soon someone will come around to ask about what else I have to sell. I don't want to have to think about that. Some others have already bartered such things as their children as workers in order to make a living. And other women I heard are turning to sex work for money and in exchange for security."
Yaakni (55 year old disable man with Hatuk accent, 1 hour recording time):
"I have been working with local authorities to get more assistance in rebuilding. But we still have so much rubble to clear away first, and there are not enough strong men to clear away such things. I know that the elderly in our community are especially suffering due to not being able to clear their land. We also have a number of orphans – where do they go? We do not have safe places for them all."
Mahli (17 yr old girl with Hatuk accent, 1 hour recording time):
"It is fine here because I am not one to complain. But there aren't enough latrines for all of us and I know some girls who won't use them if there are any men around. Men can always use the fields if they can't find latrines but women won't. And the latrines are so dirty. So sometimes girls urinate outside or even in a corner of the shelter. Some are worried that they will get a disease or worse."
Osta (14 yr old boy with Hatuk accent, 1 hour recording time):
"Oh yes, as you can see, we have enough supplies for all of us. In fact, we sometimes sell what's left over to people who are unable to get their own supplies from the distribution centre. We use that money to help fix up the house. The sooner we can live here permanently, the better my grandparents will be. My grandfather says he wants me to have a permanent home to keep me safe from being forced to join the militia." Adena (Middle Eastern Female w/ Middle Eastern accent, 30s, ~2.5 hours recording time):
"You know, I just don't understand why some people advocate so strongly for gender equality during the early recovery phase. I mean, early rescue and recovery is the most important part of the relief response; gender is mainly for development programs and we should focus on that later."
Maya (African American w/ British/South African accent, 40-50 yrs old, ~2.5 hours recording time):
"Hi, I'm the OCHA liaison officer, Maya. This is the OCHA office, where we'll have briefings, planning meetings and a debriefing session. Before I give you your assignment, I want to brief you on the current situation. Then I'll introduce you to Chin-Mae, the Gender Capacity advisor, for a short introduction to the gender framework in humanitarian programming. I'd also like you to meet one of the local humanitarian aid workers, Afammi, who will give us additional insight about the situation."
