Supporting Child Survivors
- Progress Completed
This practical guide, developed for counselors in UNRWA’s education programme in Lebanon, was developed following a training entitled “Caring for Child Survivors,” as well as an assessment of capacity-building needs conducted with counselors in the UNRWA education programme between April and August 2014. The manual aims to strengthen the capacities of UNRWA staff (teachers and school counselors) to apply the guiding principles for working with child survivors of sexual abuse and deliver primary support while respecting the “Do No Harm” principle.
Caring For Child Survivors
ABAAD, in partnership with UNRWA, developed “Caring for Child Survivors”, a tool addressed at social workers, front-line personnel, and educators working with children. The objective of this brochure is to provide knowledge on the following levels:
- How to receive child survivors;
- How to provide support to child survivors;
- How to identify indicators that a child is a (potential) survivor of GBV;
- Effects and impact of GBV on children.
