BICE fights against sexual abuse
Present in Mali since 1996, BICE formed a partnership with the BNCE Mali in 2011, to work on the issue of the sexual abuse of young girls.
We have two projects:
- Child mothers in distress
- Training and prevention of sexual abuse in the context of the interregional programme: “Fight against sexual abuse”
Training against sexual abuse
Training and prevention of sexual abuse activities in Mali are vital, to progressively reduce incidences of sexual violence.
BICE provides training for the BNCE Mali 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 train other childcare professionals.
Key figures of the programme
The success of this project lies in the multiplier effect of training. Each person 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.
