Workshops on Child Protection for partners abroad

According to the World Health Organisation, approximately 10 % of all boys and 20 % of all girls become victims of sexual violence. Also, physical assaults, such as Corporal punishment or other violent educational methods are still widespread. International and local development cooperation and humanitarian aid organisations often have insufficient structures and systems to protect the children successfully. Preventive measures and a professional case management system often do not exist. Affected children are not adequately cared for, incidents are pursued insufficiently, and the perpetrators are not consistently held accountable.

For that reason, we offer a training programme for development and humanitarian aid organisations that has helped us to train more than 650 organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Anchor the topic of child protection efficiently in your work!

Our leaflets offering information are available in English and Spanish.

    In three sequential training modules, your partner organisation abroad learns to develop their own child protection policy and to implement it successfully. The programme is based on a practice-oriented mix of methods and includes not only expert inputs but also practical exercises for the participants based on realistic scenarios and examples from the respective country. The centrepiece of the training concept is an implementation phase accompanied by the local trainers after each workshop. During this several months long phase, the training content is implemented.

  • Organisational consulting – we are happy to help!

    Kindernothilfe has a wide range of experience in the development of institutional child protection systems, which include both different preventive measures and a consistent case management. For that reason, we offer professional process consulting for interested organisations which wish to improve or develop their own child protection system. This applies both to organisations working in development cooperation and humanitarian aid and to their partners abroad.
