This webinar will share Empowered Aid's Phase I findings and recommendations on reducing risks of sexual exploitation and abuse when accessing humanitarian aid in Lebanon and Uganda. Utilizing participatory action research, Empowered Aid engaged a group of refugee women and girls to share their lived experiences with aid delivery and provide recommendations on how to make distribution and access to aid safer. The research was conducted in partnership with CARE International in Lebanon and the International Rescue Committee in Uganda.
