Accomplishments :
Year
Description
Identifying psychosocial needs of children of battered women on-going We put together case studies on the effects of battering of children who witness violence in the homes
Responding to needs of victims of child physical and sexual abuse.   Medical, legal and psychosocial interventions

Emerging Issues :

One response is the government’s inability to provide programs and services, to effectively respond to the needs of children, unawareness of the law or misinterpretation of laws. Another is the issue of capacity building for duty bearers.

CAPACITIES AND NEEDS :

Capacity for CRC work

Yes, our organization has the capacity to advocate children’s rights because we have first hand information about the psychosocial needs of children who witness violence as well as those who directly experience child physical and sexual violence.

 
Strenghts
Weaknesses
Crisis intervention  
Advocacy  
Education No enough funds
 
Issues/Concerns
Ways to Address Issues
High cultural tolerance for physical violence, e.g corporal punishment • We demystify cultural myths about discipline (parental ownership of children)
• We invoke international standards of dealing with children, e.g CRC
• We assess implementation of the laws
• We promote the rights of children through orientation of children-related laws
