This programme focuses on girls and boys aged 3-18 affected by the conflict in Iraq and Syria and displaced in the camp of Nimrud. These children and adolescents will have access to immediate psychosocial support, and psychological first aid will be provided for families fleeing the conflict and/or returning to their liberated villages of origin. TGH will carry out a first identification of children at risk, and will offer them specific services, paying particular attention to children who are alone or separated from their families.

TGH implements a mixed approach, both static and mobile:

The child protection and psychosocial support social workers' mobile units travel throughout the camp area to identify at-risk cases and respond as quickly as possible to immediate needs. TGH wants to offer individual or collective psychosocial support to 3,500 people, and reach 1,500 children and their guardians through structured activities.

The community approach is also essential to ensuring the sustainability of the action, building resilience and restoring people's dignity. Welcomed and supported by families of their communities, the children who are alone or separated from their families will benefit from effective protection. The action will strengthen the local response capacity through programmes intended for parents and training on protection issues (for 50 community service providers and 30 extra persons). In order to ensure a comprehensive response, and to prevent and strengthen the integration of newly displaced children, peacebuilding and awareness-raising campaigns will also be conducted with communities and stakeholders. Finally, support will be provided to local child protection or related structures (such as Women's Committees) in their establishment or operation.
