The second Protect Project event focused on issues of child protection and children’s rights. Youth workers from our five partner countries considered how protecting children from harm and abuse relates to their fundamental human rights as outlined under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Youth workers worked together to produce new resources for youth workers and other professionals to use with young people to support them to understand their rights and how to seek help from various forms of harm and abuse. These resources took the form of games that were developed and tested during the event. After the event, participants worked on developing one game in each partner language which you can access below. Please contact us via our contact page if you would like access to English language versions of any of the games from our other partner countries.
We also interviewed youth workers and other professionals working with young people at the event about how their work relates to child sexual exploitation and what they think people in their field need to know to help protect children and young people from abuse, harm and exploitation. You can find video interviews with professionals from each of our partner countries in each of our partner languages below.
