Child Protection and Safeguarding

child protection

To strengthen the system that protects children’s rights and to prevent risky situations, we mobilize the communities and work with social workers, teachers and other professionals in this field. We wish to improve the resilience of children and youth and help them participate in decision-making that directly involves them. We invest in capacity building, the establishment of policies and protocols in protection and safeguarding of children, and in the improvement of social services and infrastructure.
