Project Overview

Life-Saving Protection Services to the Conflict-Affected Children in Nangarhar and Kunar provinces with financial and technical support of UNICEF under CERF. The project aims to provide timely psychosocial support to both girls and boys at the Child-Friendly Space (CFS), case management and referral services, awareness and MRE, and hygiene, and address the child protection risks such as GBV, forced marriage, physical, emotional and sexual abuses with special focus to girls. The project duration was four months and cover Jalalabad, Khugiani, Batikot, Momandara, Achin and Dehbala districts in Nangarhar province and Asadabad, Narang, Watapor, Naray, Sarkani, Chapa Dara and Pech Dara districts in Kunar province.
Due to COVID-19 emergency and restrictions, Child-Friendly Spaces (CFSs) are established in the communities, under door-to-door working modalities with the recruitment of community volunteers in order to address and provide Child Protection services such as PSS, Case Management, Referral, Hygiene Awareness, COVID-19 awareness, MRE and supporting the GBV cases. Hence, the Project team uses alternative modalities to provide project-related services to children, adolescents, and their families through home-to-home visits. Consequently, the Project staff impacted positively on behavior change through hygiene education and awareness sessions for the children and their parents. Case management services are provided to those children within the communities who required the services. Some of the children were supported directly and some of them were referred to the specialized services. In addition, GBV counselors identified and registered several adolescent girls who were affected by different types of violence in the communities in different districts.”
