Our Main Interventions
APPCO First Response: Training first responders:
APPCO took the first approach in identifying the first responders and training on COVID-19 measures, including basic response to GBV, adolescent-friendly communication techniques and specific issues related to adolescent girls, such as early marriage during #stayathome. Over 480 first responders were trained in 120 communities.
Providing girls with dignity/hygiene kits.
APPCO provided washing facilities as issues related to girls’ access to communal WASH facilities and their ability to wash and access sanitary products were challenging.
UNHCR and partners, nearly all response efforts rally immediately to cater to the overall safety, food, shelter, and health needs. However, war and conflict also trigger some disorders and family support networks for children and women. If left untreated, they hinder all other physical help. APPCO targets improving the education and health needs of children by creating a safe and protective school learning environment and building the capacity of social structures that have the potential to support children enrolling and remaining in schools. We are aware of the cognitive needs of children, and APPCO conducts psychosocial.
