Combating Violence and Providing Safe Social Environment for Disabled Children


Combating Violence and Providing

Safe Social Environment for Disabled Children

 

Background:

Disabled children are exposed to violence of all forms. Researchers found out that one third of those children were exposed to different forms of violence in documented incidents. It is expected that many other incidents are not documented. Researchers also noted that disabled children are exposed to violence more than normal children. Children who are exposed to aggression badly need protection services. Besides, children who were exposed to aggression need medical and psychological care services. However, in the absence of such services, children's social, behavioral, emotional and conceptual life will be passively affected.

Hence, there is an importance that people working with disabled children should acquire complete knowledge of the concept "Child abuse and aggression". They should also possess skills and ability to find out children who were exposed to aggression or potential ones.

The Goal:

Raising social awareness of violence against disabled children in the Arab world, and providing safe social environment for those children, through preparing cadres who are active, trained and able to build the capacity of workers at organizations and societies working in the field of disabled children, as well as training them to deal with the media.

Main Objectives:

1- Developing a guiding manual on basic knowledge and information for handling and protecting disabled children, as well as providing safe social environment for those children.

2- Developing a guiding illustrative manual for disabled children.  

3- Developing a training manual, through utilizing the guiding manual.

4- Preparing professional trainers (TOT) able to conduct training on a national level.

5- Disseminating the professional development of capacity building of those working in the field of disable children on the national level. 

6- Monitoring and evaluating the implementation of training at a national level.
