This is a child protection training course for adults, based on the internationally recognised programme called ‘Keeping Children Safe’. Learning is both facilitator and participant-led to ensure international and local expertise combine.
Participants are carefully selected to represent key areas of the community. They are required to develop action plans and are responsible for implementation following the training.
Each training group is expected to unite as a ‘taskforce’ with the mandate to fight against child cruelty in their community and advocate for change.
