Project ProUCare


ProUCare

ProUCare is implemented by ECLER, with support of members of RoTIP (Romanian Network of NGOs against Trafficking in Persons).

The project is funded 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 aim of the project is to prevent sexual violence and human trafficking among Ukrainian refugees and to early identify the indicators of potential offenses, and report them to ECLER or competent authorities.

 

In order to achieve this objective, the project comprises 6 main activities:

 

A1. Research (2022, June – July) related to the current situation of Ukrainians in Romania, their level of protection, immediate needs, and medium-term integration policies

 

A2. Community organizing (2022, July 21 – 22) aims to identify 15 potential English-speaking leaders among the Ukrainian refugees and train them as community organizers (training for trainers) in order to prevent sexual based violence and human trafficking.

The training will be delivered in English and hosted by the Romanian-American University’s Center for Human Rights and Migration (1B Expozitiei Blvd., Bucharest). Participants from outside Bucharest will be accommodated at Ramada Parc Hotel (3 Poligrafiei Blvd., Bucharest).
