BICE fights against sexual abuse
BICE has worked in DR Congo since 1996, directly for the first 15 years, and currently in partnership with the BNCE DRC.
Under the interregional programme “Fight against sexual abuse” BICE and BNCE RDC provide training to childcare professionals to better protect at-risk children or victims of sexual abuse.
Activities for the prevention of sexual abuse
Training activities for the prevention of sexual abuse in DRC are key steps to progressively reduce the incidence of sexual violence.
BICE trains the BNCE DRC team on the issue of sexual violence (prevention, identification, care and rehabilitation of child victims). The aim is to build a team of resource persons who will in turn of train other childcare professionals in the DRC.
Key figures of the programme
It is difficult to quantify the number of people who will be trained in the long term; the success of this project lies in the multiplier effect of training.
Each professional who is trained by BICE will in turn train 5 other people; 25 professionals will thus be educated to deal with this issue. Each professional’s mission is to work with children, families and communities to improve the prevention of abuse and the treatment of child victims.
