To assist the post-war healing process, we’re working with community partners to reintegrate thousands of people. More than 1,000 adults have been trained to support children’s rights and psychosocial education. We also provide vocational training for unaccompanied and internally displaced children, children of adult amputees, teenage mothers and unemployed boys. We’ve provided skills training and income-generation projects for more than 400 ex-soldiers and youths in 16 communities in 100 villages.
We provide family mediation, unification and creation of child-friendly spaces. We support community-based Child Well-Being Committees to help protect the rights of children and keep them from further abuse. “Drop-In Centers” for street children are safe places with clothing, food and school supplies. These children can also take advantage of informal education and skills training as well as counseling.
Untold numbers of girls and young women were sexually exploited during the war and are now alienated and separated from their families and communities. We work to improve their emotional and physical health by bringing them back into society and providing skills to help them return to their lives and their futures. More than 1,000 girls have already received psychosocial training, and 600 are enrolled in income-generating programs.
