The sector of gender and protection helps the survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) to heal, thrive, and work with communities and institutions to break the cycle of violence. The Women’s Protection Team supports the development of holistic, survivor-centered services by conducting assessments and research, creating technical guidance, and developing evidence-based best practice for prevention of and response to violence against women and girls in the humanitarian sector. In this section, NRDC carries out different kinds of interventions under the protection sector, such as the operating of a Safe House (Safe Shelter) that accommodates GBV survivors while seeking safety and protection and providing them with case management and psychosocial support services. For general protection, we conduct protection monitoring, the provision of emergency shelters to the relocated IDPs, and the provision of psychosocial activities at the constructed women’s and girls’ friendly spaces, where women and girls take part in the recreational activities. Furthermore, livelihood skills activities such as pastry, microfinance training, hairdressing, and engagement of youth in skill-building activities at the constructed vocational training center and the Youth Center.
