Project ProUCare-2

Project FINALIZED  ]

The ProUCare-2 project is implemented by ECLER, with the support of the members RoTIP (Romanian Network of NGOs against Human Trafficking).

The project is financed by CARE – a global confederation that has been fighting poverty and social injustice for over 75 years, and coordinated at national level by the SERA Romania Foundation and with the support of Care France and FONPC.

The ProUCare-2 project aims to strengthen the ability of frontline actors and Ukrainian communities to actively engage in prevention of GBV and THB. This general objective helps to an increased ability of refugees and host community members to meet their basic needs and to ensure a safe and dignified arrival, transit and/ or stay in Romania.

The ProUCare-2 project continues the activities implemented within the ProUCare project, based on the needs identified within this previous project. The current project has as main goals:

– reduce the number of potential sexual based violence and human trafficking cases among Ukrainians and Romanians through awareness activities. In this regard 10 info-sessions with Romanian children and professors and 4 info-sessions with Ukrainian refugees will be organized.

– increase the capacity building of the frontline actors on prevention and early identification of potential sexual based violence and human trafficking cases through training programs and a youth camp.

– improve the integration and settlement process of THB survivors. THB survivors will be supported in this regard.

The project targets an immediate impact on GBV/THB risks awareness, a medium impact to reduce the number of crimes and a long-term impact on safety of vulnerable people, mainly Ukrainians that will be in a risk of THB during the post-conflict country reconstruction.

In order to achieve these objectives, the projects implements 3 main activities:
