Central African Republic Tracing and Reunification III
This project, building on projects that Plan International is currently implementing in Kaga Bandoro and undertaking implementation in Bria, will enable young people, parents, and other community members affected by the armed conflict to improve community-based child protection networks and reduce violence (including gender-based violence), exploitation, neglect, and other abuses, as well as malnutrition. This project will provide protection services to children and their families. Community based child protection networks, mobile units and Family Support Centers will work to attain comprehensive and quality case management to address abuse, violence, exploitation, neglect, and other protection issues. During this project, the Unaccompanied and Separated Children (UASC) will benefit from the complete Identification, Documentation, Research, and Reintegration (IDTR) process, including the intermediate step of placement in Host/Foster families. All UASC cases supported by this project will be cases related to the conflict. Continuous advocacy supported by sensitization of concerned parties will be done so that the Children Formerly Associated with Armed Forces and Armed Groups (CFAAFAG) are identified, documented, and supported to follow the complete disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) process for children. Complementing these activities, Plan will respond to malnutrition, another major driver of insecurity in project areas. Given the numerous nutrition needs in Kaga Bandoro and Bria, community volunteers will be trained in screening and referring techniques/skills. Children under five years of age, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, will have access to quality nutritional services for the prevention and treatment of acute malnutrition through the use of mobile units and fixed centers.
