Special section: BRIDGE

Terre des hommes is implementing its regional project titled "Building Relationships through Innovative Development of Gender Based Violence Awareness in Europe - BRIDGE" aiming to strengthen statutory response to gender-based violence affecting children and youth on the move in EU Member States.

The existing studies point to alarming accounts of gender-based violence (GBV) affecting refugee and migrant children and youth in the European Union. Trafficking, sexual exploitation and abuse, forced labour are part of the experiences of people on the move. At the same time, the considerable lack of data and professionals’ knowledge and coordination, on the one hand, and the low awareness amongst migrant children and youth themselves, on the other hand, make the issue of GBV difficult to tackle. 

In order to strengthen the statutory response to GBV affecting children and youth on the move in EU countries, Terre des hommes is implementing its regional project titled "Building Relationships through Innovative Development of Gender Based Violence Awareness in Europe - BRIDGE".

This two-year project seeks to achieve the following specific objectives:

  • To enhance availability of accurate data on GBV against children and youth on the move;
  • To develop knowledge and capacities of care professionals to raise awareness, identify and address specific forms of GBV among children and youth on the move;
  • To support and promote multi-agency collaboration and learning on GBV against children and youth on the move through regional community of practice;
  • To empower children and youth on the move to build positive relationships, awareness and understanding of GBV and support them to report, prevent, mitigate and address it.

A combination of interconnected activities will be delivered:

  • Development of data collection methodology and mobile data collection (MDC) tool;
  • Data collection using MDC tool in project countries;
  • Development of training curricula and blended learning;
  • Awareness raising campaigns designed and implemented in each country;
  • Development of a regional community of practice through the Child Protection Hub. 

The project is supported by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020) and is carried out in five countries:

  • Belgium (under the coordination of Defence for Children International – DCI Belgium and Fedasil);
  • Greece (under the coordination of Arsis – Association for the Social Support of Youth);
  • Hungary (under the coordination of Terre des hommes Regional Office for Europe as project lead);
  • Malta (under the coordination of Kopin Malta);
  • Romania (under the coordination of Terre des hommes Romania).
