LEAP project

The LEAP project: Life skills, leadership, limitless potential: Supporting children and young people affected by sexual violence in Europe by strengthening and facilitating participatory practice
What is the project about ??
The aim of this project is to promote participatory practice with children and young people affected by sexual violence. The project is being delivered by 5 international partners across Europe. We want to strengthen and improve child-centred, rights-based responses for child victims of violence. Our work will involve practitioners who work with young people and children and young people in the UK, The Netherlands, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.

We are developing a training programme that offers the knowledge and skills which practitioner’s need to develop participatory work in their own organisations. We hope tthis will build capacity to protect and meet victim’s needs through participatory approaches.
We are also developing a life skills and leadership toolkit for young people affected by sexual violence, this will be delivered by young people themselves to protect other children and young people and challenge negative attitudes towards victims. This work will ensure children and young people are listened to and recognized as experts in their own lives and their peers.

The progress of the project and materials we develop will be shared internationally via newsletters, webinars and events. If you would like to receive information about these updates please contact: pulse.women@gmail.comIMG_2775

TWELVE Children’s right to participation and the juvenile justice system

In accordance with the main international and European standards on children’s rights and with the Child Friendly Justice Guidelines of the Council of Europe, children should have access to an adequate treatment in justice. Listening to children, hearing their views and recommendations, understanding their aspirations and concerns and taking them into account for decision making processes is key for policy and practice to become more appropriate and effective. It is also a human rights imperative under article 12 (the right of the child to express his opinions and to be heard) of the un Convention on the Rights of the Child (crc) and a prerequisite for achieving compliance with international standards. International and European bodies have repeatedly encouraged states to adapt their legal systems to the specific needs of children. Read more

Awareness and creative thinking – the road to change!

There is a tendency for continuous increase in number of young people using drugs. Statistics shows that the first attempt in use of drugs is most often made in school years. The lack of information and/or neglect by families leads to serious health problems or even death.

The main objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive and innovative awareness rising and prevention approach towards health and social issues related to drug use, exchange good practices, transfer donor expertise and know-how and enhance the international dialogue on the phenomenon of drugs.

The project will contribute to a continuous decrease in the number of young people using drugs and new psychoactive substances and will reduce the cases of serious health and social problems. Among its effects will be the more welcoming and sensitized school environment and institutions.

This project will help knowledge growth and exchange of experiences among the partners which will improve their abilities of fighting drug abuse.
