Preventing Child Abuse And Family Strengthening Project, one of the support projects of SOS Children’s Village Association, has been carrying out its activities since 2006. Our aim with the project is to prevent children from separating from their biological families by supporting both children that are at risk of losing care of their biological families and their families within a structured program lasting between 3 to 5 years.
Social Workers build a strong cooperation with each family involved in the project and establish Family Development Plans (AGEP) for each family by identifying the needs of the family. Family Development Plans are evaluated on a regular basis and the development of the family is monitored.
Trainings given to families by expert instructors; women's rights, children's rights, healthy eating, first aid, family communication, developmental periods in children, dental health, rulemaking, border-setting etc.
Certified courses that are provided to families in order to increase their income levels by working in a regular job and to strengthen their professional skills.
Doctor control, pharmacy support, psychologist support, blood tests support, etc.
School registrations, stationery, uniform, nursery, private tutoring, special education
Food packages, clothes, shoes, household goods, etc.
Picnic, beach activities, cinema, festival trips, life skills improvement, children's rights activities for family and kid quality time, etc.
When the family is able to reach a sustainable structure and stand on its own feet, it is removed from the program and takes its place in the society as an independent family. Preventing Child Abuse And Family Strengthening Project has supported 690 children in 238 families by October 2018. 81 families and 191 children are living independently.
