WOMEN AND GIRLS SAFE SPACES              

Year of establishement: 2015

Objectives

Protection of vulnerable women and girls from GBV, exploitation, abuse and neglect, while tackling the shortcomings resulting from lack of available GBV related accessible services.

Brief Description of Programme 

Within the framework of ABAAD Model Center for Holistic Care for Women and Girls Survivors of Gender Based Violence, supported by the Ministry Of Social Affairs and UNICEF, ABAAD in 2015 has established eight pioneer Women and Girls Safe Spaces (WGSS) throughout the country (North, Bekaa, South, Beirut and Mount Lebanon) providing direct prevention and response services for women and girls survivors or at risk of GBV. These centers are based at the Social Development Centres of the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs, and were selected based assessments of the locales and the surroundings, and in a manner that ensures geographical diversity, to facilitate the reach of women in different areas of Lebanon.

With the overall aim to protect vulnerable women and girls from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect, including GBV, the eight Model Centers provide holistic care (case management, legal consultations and court representation, psychotherapy, psychiatric evaluation and follow up, as well as CMR services) as well as referral to emergency safe housing (Al Dar) and soft skills/economic empowerment as needed for women and girl survivors of GBV and their children.
