Bolivia – Prevention and Victim Support for a Life without Violence

INTERTEAM makes concrete contributions to the prevention of violence and victim support in Bolivia for a life without violence in cooperation with civil society actors and government agencies, so that children and young people can grow up in a non-violent environment.

 

Violence against women and children is still a burning issue in Bolivia - despite legislation. Most children experience violence in their own family and/or school – places which should actually provide protection and security. 

 

Violence against women and children has a variety of causes

The causes of violence are manifold: for example, migration and modernization processes weakening family and social cohesion and related values and protection mechanisms. Also, most people have grown up in a patriarchal culture: women are dictated by men, children are subjected to adults. This makes them more vulnerable to violence. Institutions such as police or women and children law centres, which are responsible for the implementation of laws, exhibit considerable quality defects.

 

Victims must be better accompanied and supervised 

For the prevention of violence and improvement of victim support and monitoring, it is urgently necessary to promote a culture of respectful handling and peaceful conflict resolution in families and schools. Also the efficiency and quality of care by public and private organizations which are active in this area, need to be improved and expanded.

 

INTERTEAM hepls concretely

In order to succeed, INTERTEAM has a manifold commitment:

  • Education and training in the field of violence prevention and victim counselling need be developed, improved and disseminated. So new methods are introduced for police and victim counselling, e.g. techniques of crisis management in dealing with victims or psychodrama. Also, therapy services for violence will be expanded and prevent such future violence.
  • Educational materials for use by the mass media are improved and disseminated.
  • With a postgraduate degree, municipal workers and teachers to be enabled schools to promote respectful approach and non-violent methods of conflict solution for parents and children.
  • In organic gardens, children, young people and women to learn to improve their supply and are thus personally strengthened and less vulnerable to violence.
  • Competent organizations are better networked so that they can share their professional experience and their offers are better inter-coordinated. Together they take also socio-political influence, so that prevention and care services be included in state programmes and financially secured and more people are reached and offers have a long-term impact, even without support from abroad.
  • Partner organizations receive support in quality management and in the use of volunteers and they may improve their services despite scarce resources.

From this successful collaboration between INTERTEAM and local organizations benefit each year about 10'000 violence affected children, young people and women.
