The project is a three month project founded by IOM (International Organization for Migration). The project has started from 1st September 2018 and will continue to the end of November 2018.
This project is to create a platform for women of (20-35) years of age in Kabartu 1 camp in which they have space to express and develop their skills. Through this project the women participants are gaining life skills and psychosocial support through exploring their thoughts, fear, hopes, and ideas towards a better future with the help of peer support structures.
Women are encouraged to explore their identities as positive influencers and contributors to the society through PSS and life skills peer support groups. A contextualized, integrated peer structure curriculum will teach women about life skills, peace building and reconciliation, resiliency, decision making, problem solving, critical and creative thinking, and effective communication. The interactive course will directly influence the psychosocial state of the women as they gain confidence through session’s presentation and community driven initiative.
