SEED offers a host of life skills education activities to all in the camp to improve participants’ well-being. Nutrition, hygiene and family health classes raise awareness of healthy, positive practices which promote individual and family health and well-being. To reduce the high levels of gender-based violence in the communities we work with, we deliver community messaging to every single family in the camp, which is designed to raise awareness of the harms of a range of prevalent forms of gender-based violence, including domestic abuse, early and forced marriage, child labour and sexual violence, and challenge negative cultural norms which allow violence to continue. SEED’s team also works to raise awareness of mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety, through community outreach and messaging. This lets those who are suffering know that what they are feeling is normal and that support services exist at the SEED Center.
