 "Maha’s Story" photo booklet

ABAAD, in partnership with the International Medical Corps, developed the photo booklet "Maha's Story." This photo booklet is a resource that provides Syrian families living in Lebanon with basic legal information related to protection from violence against women and girls, especially sexual violence and trafficking. The booklet tells a story through photos, and is followed by clear and simplified information in the form of questions and answers.

"As we grow up..." animation video          

"As we grow..." is an animation video on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) adapted for Syrian Refugees. The cartoon targeted girls, adolescent girls, and their caretakers/parents. It addresses sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as personal protection issues.









"Violence is Not a Game" puppetry kit

Under the title "Violence is Not a Game," ABAAD, in partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), developed puppetry kits to be used by animators working with children and adolescents. The kits were developed through a participatory approach, where ABAAD conducted two focus groups with two different groups of adolescent girls in order to identify the two main GBV issues the girls found of utmost importance. The two main identified topics were early marriage and sexual harassment.

Based on the groups’ feedback, ABBAD produced the puppetry kits, which comprise of seven puppets and an accompanying guide booklet, including two stories, one on early marriage, and another on sexual harassment. The puppetry kits assist frontline workers in organising interactive awareness-raising puppet shows on the two topics in local communities.

"Marriage is Not a Game" animation video

Within the framework of the European Union-funded project “Ending Gender-Based Violence: Towards Standardization and Strengthening of Services and Direct Response,” ABAAD, in partnership with UNICEF, produced “Marriage is Not a Game,” an animation video highlighting the risks associated with early marriage, including:

  •  Deprivation of rights to education;
  • Decrease in the girl’s ability to protect herself and her children;
  • Increased risks on the health of the girl and the foetus during pregnancy;
  • Deprivation of the ability to access decent work in adulthood.

"How to Organise Support Group Sessions for Women and Adolescent Girls"

“How to Organise Support Group Sessions for Women and Adolescent Girls At-Risk or Survivors of GBV Using a Survivor-Centred Approach” is a manual developed in partnership with the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), and a group of psychologists and humanitarian actors.

The manual aims at providing actors with the detailed steps of how to organise support group sessions. These support groups would ensure a safe space for self-expression, where women and girls who have survived GBV or are at risk of it receive direct psychosocial support. The objective of the sessions is to provide an opportunity to work on:

  1. The individual level, and develop their self-awareness and self-help capacities;
  2. The relational level, to build a supportive social network;
  3. The broader coping level, to deal with the daily stressors.
