In the context of the Covid.19 pandemic, the European Union has awarded a grant to the Child Rights Now Alliance (CRN) to respond to violence against children in this period through the JOFA project. Thus, the main objective is to reduce cases of violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect of children and adolescents.

Specifically, JOFA aims to:


Strengthening national and local protection and response systems.


Improved protection in resilient families, communities and institutions under COVID-19 and in the post COVID-19 phase.


Building the capacity of children's movements, clubs, and associations to prevent and respond to violence against children during the crisis and post-CIVID-19 phase.


Increased learning and sharing of knowledge and best practices related to child welfare approaches.

In Senegal, the JOFA project is being implemented over a period of three years by a consortium composed of SOS Children's Villages, Terre des Hommes Switzerland and World Vision International, which is the lead partner. The local partners of "Terre des Hommes", ALPHADEV, EDEN and NDEYI JIRIM, are acting as third party partners. The project targets the intervention areas of these three agencies in the regions of Dakar, Diourbel, Kaolack and Kolda. The intervention targets children, youth and local actors by strengthening actions during and after Covid-19.
