In support of non-violence against women and children.


(Singapore=Koreanpress) Benjamin Kim =Singapore held a training course from April 8 – 10, 2014 for 20 frontline ASEAN social workers who work with women and children that  have been victims of violence.

Hosted by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and organised by the Social Service Institute (SSI), the course is an initiative of the Singapore government’s representatives on the ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC).

The ACWC was inaugurated on April 7, 2010 in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, on the occasion of the 16th ASEAN Summit. The establishment of this organisation is aimed at, among others, promoting the well-being, development and participation of women and children in ASEAN. One of the mandates of the Commission is to develop policies, programmesand innovative strategies to promote and protect the rights of women and children to complement the building of the ASEAN Community.

Twenty Representatives,one for women’s rights and one for children’s rights, have been appointed by the ASEAN Member States to the Commission. Singapore’s representatives are DrAline Wong for women’s rights and KohChoonHui, for children’s rights.

Addressing the participants at the welcoming ceremony, Low Yen Ling, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Social and Family Development, informed, “In October 2013, ASEAN Leaders adopted the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women and the Elimination of Violence against Children. Singapore hopes the course will arm participants with new skills and training to help them push back the wall of violence and make a positive difference to those they serve in their home countries
.
 The three-day course provided a platform for participants to discuss the causes of family violence and abuse, identify the impact on the perpetrators, victims and witnesses and learn the different models of intervention to ensure safe practices for families and social workers.
Participants also visited PAVE (Promoting Alternatives to Violence), which is the first family violence specialist centre in Singapore.
