Applying a survivor centered approach in fighting Gender Based Violence
By Venus Okello – Front Desk Assistant
In a bid to ensure that survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV) receive quality services ROM in March 2021 held a Case Conference between different child protection actors. The purpose was to share information concerning GBV issues children face within a given community.
The team consisting of ROM staff, the Probation Officer from KCCA and Uganda Police Child Protection Unit staff formulated an agreed, plan for management and interventions that address a presented case and consideration of what legal actions are necessary to protect children in their families and communities including the services to be provided based on the assessed needs.
Moving forward the team will focus on creating a supportive environment in which survivors’ rights are respected and are treated with dignity and respect.
