The project React-Act-Prevent Sexual Violence Through Youth Work is funded by the Erasmus+, Action K2 Strategic Partnership for youth, has a duration 24 months and is being implemented in five EU countries, namely Cyprus, Greece, Poland, France (including Martinique) and Spain.
Sexual violence is considered among the most serious social problems,occurring against any person, regardless gender,age,race at any place,at any time.The project greatly supports that all Youth NGOs have the obligation to run effective sexual violence prevention, advocacy and support policies, protocols and programs, as part of their responsibilities for protection of the mental and physical health of children, especially those with fewer opportunities. The lack of awareness, education, information, capacity related problems NGOs face and lack of professional skills, abilities and competences of staff in dealing with sexual violence, appear as obstacles to this.
