COMMUNITY OUTREACH

color yellow_edited.png

A large part of our work takes place within hot spot and vulnerable villages, communities, settlements, and families, for both prevention and restoration of children, women, and families.

 

Whether they are graduates from Homes of Hope, sexually trafficked, or those vulnerable to victimization of forced sex, we are working hard to help families and communities develop safety nets and referral pathways so that children and women can live safely.

GIRL-DRIVEN APPROACH

 

Graduates leave Homes of Hope to integrate and engage back into communities and families. We want these communities to take action to be safe and to break the cycles and stigmas of forced sex. Our community team conducts family conferences and helps the communities create their own action plans to receive graduates in a welcoming and positive manner.

 

Homes of Hope uses field tested tool-kits to empower a community to build a Safety Net to protect children and women in their settlements and villages. The objectives of the tool-kits are to teach: risk indicators and push/pull factors of sexual exploitation; trauma-informed care; prevention of sexual abuse to children; prevention of gender-based violence; and best practices for restorative care.

COMMUNITY APPROACH

 

Homes of Hope works in hot spot communities in collaboration with the Fiji Civil Society Task-force to Combat Human Trafficking, which we chair. The community team works with government officers, traditional leaders, and faith groups to build referral pathways as well as new paradigms of respect, gender equality, and opportunities for power sharing.

Community leaders must attack the issues at the root to see cultural changes. Homes of Hope stands with communities to see that these paradigm changes offer safer settlements and villages.
