This project aims at improving children’s and adolescent’s emotional, social and cognitive abilities through activities which strengthen their wellbeing and resilience.
DCA’s partner JORD is conducting various psychosocial support activities in two community centres in areas where Syrian refugees, internal displaced Iraqis and host-communities are living alongside each other. Here safe spaces are provided for children, adolescents and caregivers to express their concerns and feelings.
Educational classes and vocational training are provided to the community members to improve their livelihood and enable them to meet their basic needs.
Furthermore, this project seeks to mitigate the spread and risks of Covid-19 through awareness campaigns and distribution of personal protective equipment items such as face masks and hand sanitizer.
