Preventing Gendered Violence in Covid-19 Times

Gifts for kids
Gifts for kids

Times are both unprecedented and challenging. It called us to evolve and find ways to continue moving and change for the good of those who we served –at-risk children that are growing in environments plagued of gender stereotypes, discrimination and violence.

Sanitary measures in Costa Rica are strict and prevent us to serve the children in site; therefore we had to go virtual in the most challenging situation you can imagine –lack of access to the Internet and intelligent devices, overcrowded households, lack of proper infrastructure and a nice and quiet place to learn, just to mention some.

We had to postpone all activities but those that can be carried out virtually and had to prioritize critical needs. Poverty has raised even more, and the children, their families and community are hurting –deaths by Covid-19, no means to buy food and hygiene products, and so on.
Our role has been to continue serving the kids virtually with online classes, games and special events, but we are strongly working to satisfy the basic needs of the children and their families.
The last months we have:

  • Help families with members that have contracted Covid-19, with food, hygiene products and even funeral arrangments.
  • Distribute food, masks, hygiene products, some electronic devices, toys and more.
  • Help kids with their school classes online and academic projects and homework
  • Continue to have virtual activities with the children to prevent gendered violence –virtual interactive books reading, songs, yoga, sharing and more.

It is impossible to fight gendered violence if the basic needs of the children are not meet. Right now, while we are still under the siege of this deadly disease, we need to focus on critical needs to diminish the high probabilities of gender violence increasing given the detrimental socio-economic conditions of these underprivileged households.
