【南スーダン難民の子どもの緊急支援 フェーズ3】

JISPは、南スーダンやその周辺国の難民が居住するカロベエイ新居住サイト(ケニア トゥルカナ郡)で、子どもにやさしい空間「CRC(チャイルド・リソース・センター)」を運営しています。










【English translation follows】

JISP has been operating a child friendly space “Child Resource Center (CRC)” in Kalobeyei Settlement (Turkana County, Kenya) for the refugee children from South Sudan and and its surrounding countries.

As of today, around 400 children are registered as CRC users, and trained facilitators and guardian’s association are providing support to the children.
One of he challenges we have is that it’s difficult for many of the trained facilitators to continue the work in a long term due to instability of their lives.

To overcome this issue, we decided to train more human resources who are capable of providing appropriate care to children from the refugee community by conducting additional trainings.

In Feb, we conducted 2 sets of 5 day training for 48 youth whose awareness on child protection issue is high and who also have volunteering experiences.
In this training, a wide range of topics were covered including the qualities and capacity required of facilitators, psychosocial care for children, various activities for children and how to plan them, responding to the needs of children with special needs and self-care.

As the next step, qualified participants will engage in an 8 days on-the-job training at CRC, after which they will be qualified to support children at CRC as volunteers. We are very much looking forward to seeing many youth to be trained as care providers for children.
