    Just a couple of kits make the difference

    Day 145

    An Activist Resource

    Who knew a manual could surprise and delight! But that was certainly the case on Day 145.

    SASA kits are a resource for ARC staff in locations around the world. It’s a set of binders that helps social workers and development professionals work to prevent violence against women as well as the spread of HIV. ARC’s protection teams use the kits to guide many of our activities and interventions. They’re a very valuable resource. That might explain ARC social worker Dorica’s response when we delivered a kit to the Juru sub-office where she works in Nakivale Refugee Settlement.

    “I’ve been waiting for this,” said Dorica. “When I started working for ARC in February, I got to look through the SASA kit at the head office. It’s full of so many wonderful resources. But we only had the one kit, and that needed to stay in the sub-office.”

    Dorica couldn’t wait to start taking a look through the four manuals included in the kit! “Whenever I have a little bit of down time, I’ll be looking through the SASA manuals. This will really help me better serve the community I work with here in Juru.”

    With Dorica so pleased, we couldn’t stop with the Juru office. We purchased SASA kits for all of the sub-offices in Nakivale – so that the whole team could take advantage of this terrific resource.

    This change made possible by Cresa.
