Protecting the rights and dignity of women is very important by distributing solar cookers, psycho-social support for GBV survivors, constructing sanitation facilities in the IDP camps.

2.     The communities are faced with acute food and livelihood crisis which is attributable to the prolonged droughts across the country, destruction of forest and water resources has particularly contributed to the dire food crisis and collapse of livelihoods. The negative impact of this pressure on natural resource and environment cannot be measured.

3.     The magnitude of this problem has been exacerbated by lack of concrete action plan due to lack of community knowledge on environmental management and conservation and non-existence of a government in Somalia.

 

8.    Child protection/Education and vocational training for youth

 

1.     The aim of this programme is to support youth with vocational education (e.g. tailoring, dressmaking, carpentry, masonry, computer classes and adult literacy and numeracy skills) the proposed programme will train youth in business management and will give them entrepreneurship skills. Unemployed youth, school drop-outs and ex-militias will be also supported with life skills training to enable them access economic opportunities.

2.     Facilitate durable socio-economic reintegration and ensure that community-based programmes are in place to support the reintegration of children involved in armed conflict and prevent their re-recruitment by delivering appropriate services to at risk youth.

 

3.     Strengthen community-based child protection mechanisms through mobilization and capacity building for existing local and district level structures and authorities by increasing their knowledge, skills, strengths and capacities to respond to child protection concerns.
