Challenge

On 4th November, 2020 conflict between local and federal governments led to chaos that has caused fear and panic among the rural communities and most have fled to towns where they felt safer. Currently one million people are staying in schools and colleges in Shire town in North-western Zone of Tigray Region in Northern Ethiopia. Among this population are unaccompanied underage children identified in the internally displaced people sites.

Solution

We have the physical structure to house these children and experienced psycholotgists able help these children. AO will trace family and reunified children, while helping the children reintegrate back into their communities after a stay with us, this will vary according to the need of each child. New caregivers and pyschologists will be employed on short term contracts to help manage the project. The plan is to reintegrate the children back into their pre-crisis communities within one year.

Long-Term Impact

The 50 abused children are provided with counselling and re-stabilised and reunited with their families with assisted re-integratetion within traumatised families and communities.
