About Project

DWO is tackling this issue through advocating for the rights of children to be free of abuse and exploitation, as well as strengthening local protection networks and educating children themselves on violence and abuse. The project began by training 442 parents, teachers, and other stakeholders in child protection and human trafficking. The trainings were specified for different audiences and included legal orientation on child rights for parents and civil servants, education on psycho-social health for parents, training of 21 journalists to increase reporting on child rights, orientation on the program for community members, and establishment and training of a Human Trafficking Committee. Children were empowered through orientations, trainings, and interactions on safety and protection as well as how they can become involved with their communities. Life skills training classes, where the youth discussed child abuse, violence, child marriage, etc. reached 220 girls and 178 boys. Children were also supported as needed if they were in vulnerable situations. Some of these situations which arose included sexual assault and child marriage. Successes the program had this year include: 100% of the VDCs involved have developed and implemented action plans for protecting children’s rights, 75% of children in the participating VDCs are able to identify risk factors of violence and abuse and know how to respond, and 95% of victims of violence and abuse who were supported by the program reported that they had returned to having a normal life. Key Activities include: numerous awareness raising campaigns, regular meetings with government officials and stakeholders, assisting V/VPV in handling cases of violence and making them visible to the community. They hosted the biggest child conference in Bardiya district, street dramas put in place by child clubs, and events regarding child abuse and child exploitation. The project helps find and create financial, material and psychological support for our beneficiaries and provides counseling support for victims of abuse. It conducted child protection trainings for VCP, CPC, police officers and other staff members, and classes for children on peace building and life skills. Finally, they wrote and publish various materials such as posters, wall magazines, proposals and a code of conduct to minimize violence and abuse in schools The project targets to primary school children, out of school children and disadvantaged children including poor children, girls and children with disability
