PSEA at the Frontline: Together We Say No to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse
Global multilingual campaign to raise awareness on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) among frontline workers. Together we say NO! to sexual exploitation and abuse.
The World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in partnership with Translators Without Borders (TWB) developed a global campaign to further empower frontline workers and partners in the fight against sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA). The project targets field-based workers who play a key role within assistance programmes and interact most with beneficiaries and community populations. Under the tagline “Together We Say No”, the PSEA at the Frontline project provides a comprehensive multilingual package of outreach material designed to equip these frontline workers and partners with PSEA knowledge to help prevent SEA from occurring as well as to raise awareness in recognizing and reporting SEA.
The PSEA at the Frontline project has been designed through a bottom-up approach that used the feedback of over 3,000 frontline humanitarian workers from over 80 countries to ensure field applicability and effectiveness of the project’s outreach products and messages. Using real life examples of PSEA and simple content, the campaign’s outreach package includes highly illustrated print material, audio messages and multimedia resources available in over 20 languages. Testing of the materials was also carried out in five countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Colombia, South Sudan, and Turkey.
All the products created are available for use by UN agencies, partners and the broader PSEA community on the IASC website HERE.
