In January 2019, “Hope For Children” CRC Policy Center (HFC) started the coordination of the BASE Project on Migrant and Refugee child-friendly support services in case of sexual and Gender Based Violence (GBV). HFC partnered with seven other organizations in Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Austria, UK and Portugal, completing a series of events, training and publications on GBV and the rights of the child.
The online Transnational Conference is taking place on
March 22nd at 11:30 AM (UTC+02 – 1:30 PM UTC+02) and marks the completion of the BASE Project. The
Conference is dedicated to the rights of migrant girls to a child-friendly
justice in cases of sexual abuse. Human Rights Advocates, Support Service
Professionals, Survivors of GBV, Representatives of Civil Society Organizations
and Migrant Community Representatives from all the countries participating, will
come together to discuss how to deliver information and support judicial
processes in child-friendly and culturally sensitive manner.
Major topics for discussion are the role that Cultural Advisors / Community Advocates can have in raising awareness on GBV, the importance of advocating for the rights of girls, and how to support professionals handling cases of sexual abuse.
