Up to 11 participants from Cameroon will be making virtual professional connections in San Diego exploring the following specific objectives for the project outlined by the Department of State:
- To explore methods and best practices for building resilience and self-care of humanitarian actors and human rights defenders;
- To observe a psychosocial approach inclusive of self-care into the work of human rights defenders and humanitarian actors;
- To survey options and resources available for human rights defenders and humanitarian actors in need of protection or support (relocation, short-fuse grants, advocacy); and
- To share best practices for how organizations can help their teams deal with psychosocial impacts of threats and trauma.
