Children and youth contributing to their own protection

We are committed to supporting children to be more knowledgeable, committed and confident to recognise, prevent and seek help for all forms of violence against them, and to make them more aware of the protection services and support mechanisms that are available to them.

Key to our approach is supporting children to unite against peer-on-peer violence including bullying and gender-based violence, to mobilise around child protection issues and to work in partnership with civil society and service providers to end violence. We also support them in protecting themselves in emergency situations, creating opportunities for them to speak out and influence others about their right to protection, and building their confidence to achieve this.
