Reaching out for Protection, Reaching in for Resilience

The ‘Reaching Out for Protection, Reaching in for Resilience’ project aims to support the psychosocial development and well-being of Syrian refugee children in an environment where they feel safe and protected.

In safe spaces, children can participate in age- and gender-appropriate psychosocial support activities through War Child’s DEALs interventions (I DEAL for 6-12 year olds, BIG DEAL for 12-18 year olds, and SHE DEAL for girls). They also get the chance to participate in basic recreational activities such as sports and outings, and take part in non-formal education activities. To further ensure children’s well-being, mothers and female guardians learn about preventing and coping with sexual abuse, child labour, early marriage, and violence against children. Partner staff also receives training on psychosocial support methodologies and child protection practices including identification, assessment and referral.

The project is implemented in schools and social centres in Halba, Bedawi, Bebneen, Tripoli, El Mina and El Minyeh in northern Lebanon, and in Beirut. The project is funded by UNICEF.
