Child well-being

Child Protection

What we want to do

We want to tackle issues of harmful traditional practices such as physical abuse, female genital mutilation (FGM), child marriage, child labour, child trafficking and domestic violence.

What is the problem?

Weak local informal and formal child protection systems, negative parenting, violent discipline and generally child abuse, neglect and exploitation.

How is World Vision addressing the issues?

We are applying a mix of project models including Learning Through Play, Channels of Hope (CoH) for gender & protection, Basic Education Improvement Plan (BEIP) School Feeding, Child Protection & Advocacy (CP&A) and Community-Change in Somaliland, Puntland and South West regions.
