The Wawiya is essentially about mobilizing the strengths and resources around the family in order to multiply the options and possible solutions in a team meeting facilitated by a facilitator. The goal is to put in place a "mobilization plan" to restore the family's balance and the child's well-being. This meeting can be requested at any stage of the intervention process. In addition, we hope that Wawiya will be used as part of the complementary field checks (FFW) to mobilize the family and the community to avoid the retention of the referral.
Team Decision Making (TDM) is one of the strategies of the My Family, My Community (MFMC) program. Its objective is to mobilize the family and the community to protect a child by putting in place a "safety plan" in situations where there is a risk of placement, displacement or to ensure successful reintegration.
It is also a neutral facilitator, duly trained by an MFMC-accredited trainer, who facilitates the meeting following a request from a health center worker, the 1st line service or a youth protection worker.
