Conflict and Consequences: The majority, if not all, of the children who come into the Home of Hope come from a background of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation. Many of them are street children who are forced, usually by their family or child labour ringleaders, to beg or steal in order to bring in money. Others come from even more heart-rending situations, such as sex-trafficking, drug experimentation, and even human organ trafficking. The centre hosts and average of 200 children per year coming from different backgrounds and nationalities, across all of Lebanon. Children may stay a few days, up to years, as there are no criteria for placement. UPEL, MoSA are referring children to Home of Home when enforcing law 422 (children at risk/victims of violence), and the police. MoSA lacks an alternative care system that promotes family based solutions. Project aim: General Objective: Contribute to improved care for the marginalized children residing in Home of Hope Specific Objectives: Increase HOH’s staff competencies and organisational capacity to address the needs of marginalized, abandoned children in their residential facility.
