Paris, 13 October 2022. Today in Paris, Pramila Patten, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, and Patrick Weil, President and Founder of Bibliothèques Sans Frontières, broke new ground with the announcement of a partnership through a Framework of Cooperation.
The main focus of this partnership will be the deployment of modern technologies in implementing innovative initiatives in support of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, their families, and communities. Bibliothèques Sans Frontières’ «Ideas Box» is a transformational mobile multimedia centre that can serve as a safe space for creativity, innovation, and healing. The Ideas Box, when properly equipped, has the potential to provide a wide range of support services encompassing holistic care for survivors and communities ranging from mental health services and psychosocial support to legal support, educational activities, and vocational training.
