Psycho-Social Supports (PSS) and Protection Programs

These programs are integrated in different activities, such as in the development of community action plans assisted by DRR Team or in the dissemination of information when the team entered the assisted community with MPCA or Livelihood program. The Protection Team is now developing a policy for their institution which cover the safeguarding and protection issues. This policy is important to protect the people they served and also their staffs during the project implementation.

Caritas PSE Manado and JRS Indonesia will work together in three villages, namely Batusuya Go’o and Sindosa at Donggala District and Sidera Village at Sigi District).
