Improving access of children at risk and survivors of violence exploitation and abuse, to improved and equitable prevention and response

The "Improving access of children at risk and survivors of violence exploitation and abuse, to improved and equitable prevention and " project aims to participate in the establishment of a sustainable inclusive culture among children at risk and survivors of violence exploitation and abuse,

The "Improving access of children at risk and survivors of violence exploitation and abuse, to improved and equitable prevention and " project aims to participate in the establishment of a sustainable inclusive culture among children at risk and survivors of violence exploitation and abuse, including those with disabilities, and targeting up to 510 children and caregivers in Beirut during 2021.

The project provided FPSS and PSS community-based sessions for children, and skills development, and participatory and recreational activities. Children, including those with a disability, discovered their own voice, organized their thoughts, and grew in confidence and self-esteem. Play, imagination, art, and the creative process applied during the sessions allowed children to work through painful experiences and create reparative ones, sometimes unknowingly. The project also provided emotional support for caregivers through support groups.

The activities implemented in this project also had an educational aim: elements of psycho-education to recognize and deal with one’s feelings, and methods of self-regulation will be included in the activities. The processes can also enhance concentration and the willingness to learn that are needed for education. 

This project is implemented by Red Oak in partnership with Save the Children and with the support of UNICEF
