What does our prevention program do?

Capacitate community leaders and stakeholders to be ambassadors of child protection

Our prevention program trains community-based organizations, caregivers, and stakeholders who surround children so that they can become ambassadors of child protection. After completing their training, the participants are able to administer recreational activities while delivering key messages on several topics. The trainees also acquire several techniques to administer these activities in fun and interactive ways, such as lego techniques, sports for development…etc.

 

 

Organize prevention events to sensitize the whole community

Recreational activities, balloons, games, and food are offered. Key messages are also delivered through animated games at our event stands. These messages are addressed to children, parents, and caregivers, and provide them with parental tips, brochures on available services offered by himaya, and flyers on various child protection awareness themes.

 

 

Capacitate staff of play areas

We offer employees of play areas training sessions and development opportunities consistent with operational requirements, occupational categories, and skill requirements. Different topics can be tackled such as facilitation skills, sports for development, including children with disabilities in their activities, respecting a child’s personal space, accepting others and respecting diversity, etc. These training sessions aim to empower and develop the staff members' skills and is a key investment strategy for individual and organizational success.

 

 

Creating child-friendly spaces spread out across communities

The purpose of CFSs is to mobilize communities around the protection and well‐being of all children - including highly vulnerable children - and provide opportunities for children to play, acquire contextually relevant skills, and receive social support.

 

 

Capacitate parents and caregivers with skills to protect children

A curriculum was established for caregivers and parents, with its main objective being to increase awareness among parents and teaching them the necessary parenting skills to hold healthy relationships with their children. These sessions are offered through conferences (up to 50 persons), and through closed sessions (20 persons maximum).

 

 

 

Capacitate children with self-protection skills

The curriculum offered focuses on the following skills while giving awareness sessions to children in Lebanon: raising awareness on child protection issues, building protective skills to prevent child abuse, detecting cases of child abuse, and referring them to himaya's resilience program.

 

 

Capacitate children at risk of abuse

Focused sessions are provided to children at a higher risk of abuse with a custom designed curriculum designed to target vulnerable children, children with disabilities, or children at risk of child labor and early marriage. These activities empower them and equip them with self-protection skills during the difficult conditions and circumstances they face.
