The We-Act measure is an observation and performance-based assessment designed to assess the extent to which frontline education, child protection, and psychosocial support workers in humanitarian settings have adequate competencies to provide effective support to children. In it its current form, it is intended to provide data for program monitoring and evaluation purposes, although future testing will evaluate its suitability for use as a screening measure. We-Act was tested in Gaza with new and experienced facilitators of War Child Holland’s DEALS intervention, a low-level, psychosocial support program. At this stage, We-Act is under development.  

Please see the package including a set of training materials in either English or Arabic and the technical working paper in English.  If interested in using the measure, please contact the developer for more information.
