Zrinka commented on Yemen - Where is my home?

Thank you a lot!

Thank you Angi.


Hi Angi,

I totally agree with you, trauma healing will be included for sure. From the experience that we have in our region trauma plays significant role because even today we have cases where young men and women joined because of the events that happened 20 years ago. Currently, we are developing CVE programs in cooperation with local tribes and communities and what we have heard there have also been cases where children from respective families have joined VE groups. However, because of the lack of experience in CVE programs they do not know how to approach them and reintegrate them back in the society. Saw the youtube video and that is one part we are planning to implement. It would be great to hear about your trauma-informed CVE programs in Kenya and Somalia. Any advice is more than welcome. Maybe we can stay in touch over e-mail?
