Promoting learning around recovery and reintegration
Retrak is excited to be part of the RISE Learning Network, looking at children’s Recovery and Reintegration (R&R) following Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE). Together with Family for Every Child and the International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation, Violence and Trafficking, University of Bedfordshire, we are promoting an open, vibrant and locally accessible global learning network, in order to improve outcomes for children and adolescents affected by sexual exploitation.
Child sexual exploitation is a global yet still largely hidden problem. It has devastating long-term impacts on children’s current and future physical, mental and reproductive health and social wellbeing. Yet learning related to interventions in this area is often not captured and shared.
Therefore, a key part of the RISE Learning Network is a new online resource centre featuring carefully selected guides, tools and resources, available in multiple languages, and relevant to multiple regions. RISE connects with practitioners and policy makers worldwide, and supports learning on the ground in three focus regions: Latin America & Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa and South & Central Asia. In addition, three learning projects will provide opportunities for practitioners to collaborate in joint initiatives to generate new learning on recovery and (re)integration from child sexual exploitation, across all three regions.
