Current Activities and Projects/Programs:
Recently, DCI-Somalia has carried out inter alia the following projects:
- Educating Community Members on Gender Equality
Local Community members, including girls and young women, were sensitized on gender equality, gender-based violence, child prostitution, child protection systems, gender-based violence, and protection measures for girls and young women against violence through outreach Program. Staff of DCI-SOMALIA visited community centers, held discussions to educate the community members, and inform them of the available systems, structures, and mechanisms for child protection in the communities and the institutional levels. This activity resulted in sensitization and awareness-raising for community members to support the promotion and protection of children’s rights in their communities and enquiries about and access to the socio-legal protective services provided by the DCI-SOMALIA’s socio-legal defence centre.
- Advocating Child Protection and Gender Equality via Nation Television
Somali National Television (SNTV) discussions and interviews were granted to advocate for child protection and gender equality. The sensitization programmes targeted government institutions and the general public to raise their awareness, sensitize them, and advocate for change and support for the promotion and protection of children’s rights in Somalia.
