    • Child Safeguarding Overview

      What is Child Protection?

      Child protection is actions taken to protect a child from harm. This harm can be intentional or unintentional. You may also hear it referred to as child safeguarding. 

      What is a Child?

      A child is defined by the UN as someone who is less than 18 years old. 

      Why is it important?

      • Protection of children and their rights

      • Children are vulnerable. They do not know their rights and are unable exercise their rights

      • Your beneficiaries may be even more vulnerable and because of language and cultural barriers, tackling these issues is even harder

      • To protect you and your volunteers
