In order to develop the capacity of frontline actors working with SGBV survivors in emergency settings, ABAAD, in partnership with UNICEF, conducted two five-day GBV CMiE trainings (in the North and the Bekaa) and one refresher training (in Tyr) for social workers working with women and girl survivors of GBV in Lebanon, from both refugee and local communities.
The workshops aimed at strengthening the case management capacities of the 53 participants through introducing them to:
- The conceptual framework of Gender, Gender Based Violence, Case Management, Humanitarian Emergencies;
- Steps of Case Management through the use of women’s human rights framework in line with internationally-recognised standards of good practice;
- Interactive Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials and tools for community education and outreach on GBV in emergencies;
- The legal framework for the provision of care to child survivors.
The training was conducted by global GBV experts and involved a mixed-method approach including seminars and plenary discussions, group work, role plays, and other creative means to ensure learning. The trainings were conducted in both Arabic and English (simultaneous translation).
