Outcome 1: Children and teenagers on the move in the Kamianets-Podilskyi district, left without parental care, receive necessary humanitarian relief, including psychosocial support, assistance in reuniting with families in Ukraine or abroad, and support in developing skills for the prevention of sexual or other forms of abuse.

A safe meeting space is arranged, where children on the move can meet child protection professionals, and have their needs met through an initial assessment.

Teenagers on the move participate in the design of child protection services, and receive psychosocial counselling, as well as support in developing skills to prevent harassment and sexual abuse, and in keeping safe.

Teenagers on the move receive dignity kits and backpacks for travel, with items such as clothes, shoes, hygienic items, and other products that are necessary for their daily lives and safety while on the move.

Children and teenagers are reunified with reliable adults that have the capacity to appropriately care for them.

Outcome 2: Legal duty-bearers in the Kamianets-Podilskyi district have the capacity and the necessary tools to ensure children’s rights to protection, including the prevention of, and response to, cases of sexual abuse involving children on the move.

Local authorities, including social services, political leaders, police, and medical staff, are trained in preventing and responding to cases of harassment and sexual abuse involving children, and in helping them in keeping safe.

Medical and psychosocial interinstitutional cooperation protocols and procedures, based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, for the assistance of children on the move, are developed and approved.

A comprehensive set of methodologies and tools, adapted to the context, are developed in order to be able to assess the needs of teenagers, and develop individual plans for support and referral to further specialised services when needed.

Consolidated data on the humanitarian and social assistance needs of children 12 to 18 years of age, on the move without parental care, are available for further decision-making processes.
