Dear Uchenna Okafor , thanks for your dazzling state on this move, I really acknowledge your motives, for really there is a great potential move to deal with disabled adolescents challenges, because the hitches underlying them are many like introduction of many programs for young people with disability, and expected solution will be to talk about the immoral of substance abuse to the adolescent life cycle.
There is an increasing number of programs that address the specific needs of young people with disabilities, organized by government agencies, private voluntary organizations, religious organizations, and community groups. However, globally the number of such programs remains small. In an international survey on the status of disabled adolescents, only 12% of all experts and organizations surveyed were able to identify programs that targeted disabled young people as a distinct group.
Almost all the programs identified were very small, serving fewer than 100 young people around the camps where millions are disabled. Such programs are more likely to be urban-based and only available to more affluent young people. On this move, we also think of promoting different activities that intend to build capacity and encourage teenager’s self-esteem with the intention of solving and preserve the rights and dignity of the adolescents’ disabled girls.

Hi @Sultan, thanks for the fantastic point, there is a need of understanding the model on the move for fighting against evil actions towards adolescents and young girls and ladies around the camps, for over many years, it is known that communities around the camps faced sexual assault, so the motive behind this move is to ensure that all adolescents and young girls and ladies around the camps affected by sexual violence have access to healing and recovery programs, services and support. By making sure we keep our vision of an international free from sexual abuse and sexual assault, we decided to develop the action plan that will support in fighting against un-acceptable behaviors and actions.

EFFECTIVE ANTICIPATION STRATEGIES AND IMPROVED INTERVENTION
Sexual violence is preventable however, so many programs on combating the increase of sexual exploitation around the camps are introduced but yet the situation seems to grow, solely providing treatment for survivors and punishing offenders will not end sexual violence, so we are sure by this approaches, at the end will be a check towards other introduces plans, since the implementation will basically look on solving and meeting direct victims of the problem. A comprehensive sexual violence prevention education strategy is the key to changing attitudes and changing behaviors. A multi-faceted approach to address prevention on several levels is required to create a fundamental shift in societal attitudes.

LONG-LASTING LEADERSHIP AND LIABILITY
One of the main goals is to make sure we create a strong leadership and accountability skills to the communities that have strongly suffer from the sexual tales, so far the plan is to have so many workshops and seminars on how to combat the situation. This plan focuses on the need for leadership, both at a public and local government level. Addressing the multifaceted issue of sexual violence will require a collective approach that includes enhanced leadership and accountability by all key stakeholders.

ACTIVE OUTREACH PLANS
This is particularly significant because often people who are most marginalized are also at a greater risk for sexual violence. All refugees who are affected by sexual violence and who choose to seek services must be able to do so with dignity and comfort, this will be more of priorities rather than concentrating on other un-useful information, second hand data, data that will hide the reality, which will be ready to be shared globally, instead of going to the field and making a clear conversations with the victims and identify the magnitude of the problem and set a clear strategies to combat the problem. So these plans will create a clear output toward this move.

Hi @Marie-Noëlle. RUBANGIZA, thanks for your brilliant remark, I really salute your motives, I think it’s a great inkling for two of us to unite and create a well-rounded move, since you already implement and am on the way to do same, so there is a great potential move to deal with this adolescents challenges, because the problems underlying the right of teens are many, like frequently stress and depression, teens Pregnancy and the like, and expected solution will be to talk about the immoral of substance abuse to the adolescents. And if you discover the problems too late, we should still point out the harmful effects of substance abuse to those adolescents, further more providing of professional help must be pressed in ground right away because those situation will be way of letting you know that something is wrong and that group of teenagers needs help. Apart from that, we also think of promoting different activities that intend to build capacity and encourage teenager’s self-esteem with the intention of solving and preserve the rights and dignity of the adolescents’ girls.
