We provide child welfare and related professionals, comprehensive information and resources to help protect children and strengthen families. We focus on child abuse and neglect, foster care and adoption. We strive to create a safe, loving and nurturing environment for these children, by giving them a health diet and good education.
The Child Protection programme is aimed at protecting children against abuse, exploitation and violence in their diverse forms and in all settings. Areas of focus include strengthening child protection systems, building capacity of child protection duty bearers; child rights awareness and advocacy for responsive laws as well as increasing access to quality services for preventing and responding to child abuse.
The Child Rights Governance programme aims to strengthen national and local systems and structures for implementing, monitoring and reporting on the fulfillment of children’s rights according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Efforts are also directed towards improving the technical capacity and commitment of relevant organs of the government to fulfill their obligations towards children.
