Parents going through divorce often experience difficulties in communicating and dealing with each other. As a result, this affects both parents and child(ren) negatively. Therefore, one of the main strategic objectives to overcome this issue is to enrich the quality of social relations and connections within the family and to reduce the potential negative impact of separating families with child(ren) below 9 years of age.
Ma’an in partnership with Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority (ECA) has worked on an intensive research to help assess the services needed and required for divorcing families. The data analysis gathered has shown an increase in divorcing parents’ awareness of the impact it has on their young child(ren). Thus, enhancing parents’ understanding, awareness and behavioural methods in supporting their child(ren) during divorce is of high importance to safely secure the child(ren)’s well-being.
Ma’an is executing a results-driven procurement for a new set of advanced service (counselling program). The intervention is aimed at making the necessary resources and services readily available and accessible while at the same time strengthening the service provision and the provider’s ability to manage performance management. This would include, in part, designing a strategic management system to increase efficiency and demonstrate improved results for contracted services from government spending.
