BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
The Danish Refugee Council is an International Non-governmental Organization that promotes and supports durable solutions to the daily challenges faced by refugees and internally displaced people all over the world. DRC has been operating in Kenya since 2005, where we assist refugees and displacement-affected communities by implementing protection and livelihoods activities that increase their self-reliance and expand opportunities for a dignified life. DRC works in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps, as well as in Nairobi and Mombasa to assist urban-based refugees. Danish Refugee Council (DRC) runs a comprehensive GBV prevention and response program in Dadaab’s Ifo 1, ifo 2 and Dagahaley refugee camps where GBV survivors and their dependents are provided with such services as case management, psychosocial support; provision of safe shelter at two protective spaces (protection area and safe haven) as well as activities ranging from protection monitoring, community-based prevention and awareness raising activities.
Following the camp consolidation processes from early 2017, DRC through funding from the ECHO received funding to produce information booklets that would allow the refugees to have the information on what their rights and responsibilities are during the population changes, what the protection referral pathways following changes in service providers and what GBV protection services are offered by DRC.
