Truth, Bread, and Tea Toolkit

The Truth, Bread, and Tea Toolkit is a toolkit for Reintegration of Women Survivors of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence and Children Born of War. The toolkit aims to promote greater recognition of the unique societal reintegration needs of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence and children born of war, as well as to highlight the importance of addressing the needs of these survivors within formal transitional justice processes and grassroots, community-based reintegration initiatives.

This toolkit is created for practitioners in the field of justice and human rights. Many human rights defenders have worked alongside survivors for many decades, and their dedication has resulted in a deep and rich understanding of their own context of issues. However, they often have not been exposed to developments and innovations in other countries. This toolkit aims to share some of the best practices that have emerged, in a simple and practical way.

Published in May 2021, this toolkit, Truth, Bread, and Tea, draws on the extensive research conducted by Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation (GIJTR) partners the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC), Asia Justice and Rights (AJAR), Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), Humanitarian Law Center (HLC), and Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) as part of the Reintegration and Transitional Justice project.
