The project supported vulnerable children including children with disabilities, their caregivers, and communities in need in 6 districts in Paktika, and Khost provinces in both Central Region.
Throughout this project, TACT worked with the de facto authority at the local level and non-government partners to reach children and their communities affected by conflict and disasters with child protection lifesaving interventions. These included the provision of Mental Health and Psychosocial (MHPSS) services; family tracing and reunification (FTR) including supporting orphans that are abandoned in institutions; prevention of killing and maiming of children through Explosive Ordinance Risk Education (EORE) and; provision of case management, alternative care, referral to specialized services and other basic services (e.g. Health, vaccinations, safe drinking water, treatment for malnutrition). Sensitization and awareness raising on COVID-19 and other Child Protection (CP) issues in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) settlements and host communities was an integral part of the project.
