Case Study: Responding to Child Sexual Assault in Bolivia
Together for Girls, a public-private partnership fighting violence against children worldwide, invited Iris Group to develop a case study capturing the innovative and comprehensive approach developed by A Breeze of Hope Foundation in Cochabamba, Bolivia. A Breeze of Hope combats physical and sexual violence against children and adolescents through psychological and social support; legal accompaniment; violence prevention; and healthy childhood development. Iris Group conducted a site visit and extensive interviews with stakeholders, documenting its model, approaches, and results. Together for Girls and Breeze of Hope shared the published case study at the Sexual Violence Research Institute Forum in September 2017.
