The Forgotten Children of War organization is the voice of the most innocent victims: children born of wartime sexual violence. Its mission is to ensure access to quality education, adequate social protection, psychological support and employment opportunities. Forgetten Children of War also fights for the understanding and protection of the rights of children born of wartime rape.
In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic caused a slowdown in economic activity. This situation particularly affects women, who make up the predominant workforce in widely affected economic sectors such as hotels, catering, tourism, hairdressing, floristry and retail.
During the pandemic, an increase in the number of victims of domestic violence was observed. Women who had survived wartime rape suffered a new trauma. This left them feeling fearful and unpredictable. By enabling women to work, we also offer them the power to leave a situation of violence and be able to provide for themselves.
