Centre Diotima in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) – the United Nations reproductive health and rights agency, has implemented a project aiming to enhance the protection of SGBV survivors, utilizing capacity building as a way of strengthening the response capacity of protection actors, especially those in touch with the refugee population.
The SGBV Capacity Building Resource Package includes publicly available training materials that were made and can be used in the future for the training of professionals according to current needs. It aims to prepare professionals to meet the diversified support needs of migrant and refugee women SGBV victims of all forms of violence (harassment, rape, sexual assault, sex trafficking, FGM, etc) experienced either in the country of origin, during their journey, in the reception centers, or detention camps. During a previous time period the materials have been tested and evaluated in the context of capacity building workshops for public sector and NGO staff, organized and implemented by CRWI Diotima, receiving very positive feedback.
The selected materials were structured in a way that would allow facilitators to use them for trainings catering to different participants’ profiles. The produced resource package includes an overview of the Greek legislation on SGBV and covers the issues of: Core Concepts of Gender Based Violence, Basic Terminology, Signs and Symptoms of GBV, Guiding Principles for Working with Survivors of GBV, Working with Child Survivors of GBV in Greece, Referral, Communication skills and the National Response System in Greece.
