Based-community protection intervention in the context of 10 traditional gold mines (Sanguié and Tuy) Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Based-community protection intervention in the context of 10 traditional gold mines (Sanguié and Tuy) Burkina Faso

Pays : Burkina Faso

Durée : Start date : 01/02/2017 — End date : 31/01/2019

Description
The population of the 10 target golden mines has facilitated access to basic health assistance, sexual and reproductive health, protection and prevention of violence mechanisms, psychosocial support, legal aid in case of human rights violations ; At least 300 women with school-aged children, 100 girls who used to prostitute or underwent cases of exploitation and 100 young miners provided with income generating activities ; 5000 children have access to basic education, psychosocial support, cultural and recreational activities provided inside child-friendly spaces, thanks to the involvement of local communities and associations. At least 10% of those children (500) provided with birth registration certificate and enrolled at school ; 20.000 people sensitized through campaigns and activities fostering social changes on different key-issues, including environment, conflict prevention and resolution. Description : In Burkina Faso, the establishment of illegal gold mine sites is a currently hot issue, especially because of the involvement of a huge amount of people who create temporary settlements all around the mining work fields. In such a context, life is particularly tough and no rules exist : drug, prostitution, interpersonal conflicts and diseases are the main issues the project aims to contrast, in order to promote the respect of human rights, especially of the most vulnerable ones.

Objectifs
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the resilience capability of families and communities who live near to the traditional gold mines, to contrast poverty, the risks of diseases, stigmatization, exploitation and abuse. The specific objective is to contribute to the creation of protection mechanisms within the communities, to ensure the prevention and resolution of conflicts, the respect of human rights and to facilitate the access to “in situ” social mobile services, with a special focus on most vulnerable people who live close to and work at the golden mine sites.

Bénéficiaires : 10 community members (for each one of the target gold mines) trained on human rights and conflict prevention and resolution skills, in order to establish forms of self-managed and community-based protection mechanisms (“protection committees”) ;

Financement : EuropeAid, CIAI
