In a project started mid of October, representative of IDPs, women and youth received PSEA awareness raising training at 70kare IDP site in Mekelle.
The primary objective of the training was to equip members of the affected community with fundamental knowledge and understanding about the prevention and appropriate response to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA). By promoting community and stakeholder participation, the training aimed to reduce instances of SEA experienced by beneficiaries during humanitarian operations. Participants included IDP representatives, service providers, and government bureaus.
This project, being implemented in collaboration with UN WOMEN and funded by EHF, is currently underway in Tigray and Somali regions. The overarching goal of the project in these two regions is to address the issue of stigmatization surrounding SEA reporting within high-risk communities. Furthermore, the project seeks to ensure that affected populations have access to crucial information about survivor-centric services readily available to them.
