People who are living in IDP camps are suffering from different forms of daily life issues. During Covid-19 lockdown, all family members were confined at homes experiencing intense stress and anxiety. By this, some families were facing Domestic Violence and Abuse.


BWOCD provides family sessions to parents to raise their awareness about different important topics including parenting, Gender equality, child rights and Domestic violence. in addition to engaging family members in practical activities together to strengthen family bonds such as cooking, garden care, and drawing. Those family members will be provided with some PSS kits to use in the activities, such as drawing and gardening kits.

Long-Term Impact

This project will create a strong bond for 100 families. Healthy families produce people who make positive contributions to the community. Individuals of a strong family are more likely to cope with stress, have healthier behaviors, and have self-esteem. consequently, domestic violence and abuse will be diminished in the community up to a high level.
