“The project “Together against Violence” focuses on the prevention of cases of repeated violence by children and youths aged 14-18 years in Bulgaria, Spain and Austria. The main goal of the project is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the work with children and youths by improving the prevention activities and the intervention in view of reducing the subsequent violent behavior.
Paper Presented During the FICE-INTERNATIONAL FEDERAL COUNCIL Held in Barcelona – Spain on 7th November, 2014 by Simon Peter Otieno – President of FICE Kenya. Abstract: “The Critical Review Paper (2010) informs that over 90% of OVCs are given care by the extended family system. This demonstrates and appreciates that the extended family care, a form of informal alternative care, in child and youth care, is the most suitable form of alternative care. This explains its growing popularity. The paper, therefore, demonstrates the suitability of this culture-based form of alternative care for children and youth in need of care and protection among communities, in comparison with orphanages or juveniles, among other categories of formal care.”
