Main Findings
Among those most marginalized from accessing services, KIs identified persons with physical disabilities, female-headed households and persons with mental disabilities. According to respondents, domestic violence is the most prevalent type of violence, and it most affects girls aged 12-18. This is followed by civil violence (e.g. demonstrations in the camp) affecting mainly boys, aged 12-18. Of respondents, 21 (39%) identified domestic violence as the most prevailing form of violence in the camp; followed by 16 (30%) stating civil violence; nine (17%) criminal violence and lastly eight (15%) gang violence. In terms of locations identified as most likely for violence to occur, home (tent) and the latrine/shower facilities were identified for girls as the highest risk locations, while for boys, home (tent) and the main gate of the camp were identified. For women, home and distribution points were mentioned as areas where violence is highest, while for men distribution points and the main gate of the camp were identified. Fifteen (38%) KIs mentioned male spouses and 11 (28%) stated male parents/caregivers as the main perpetrators of domestic violence. Home (tent) and common areas, such as the latrines/shower facilities were mentioned by respondents as areas where sexual violence may happen. Women, girls and boys are largely believed to turn to a family member to seek support for sexual violence. Whereas 27% of male respondents mentioned that men would not seek support. Evenings and nights are considered the most insecure times of the day, particularly for girls and young women who leave their shelter to use public latrines. This is mainly due to the lack of lighting. Children and adults with disabilities face a range of additional challenges in the camp, particularly related to difficulties in accessing basic services.
