Evaluating the Effectiveness of Child Friendly Spaces: Goma Field Study Report

Child Friendly Spaces (CFS) is an intervention frequently used by humanitarian agencies for supporting and protecting children in emergencies. Leading agencies are collaboratively developing standards and guidelines for CFS while strengthening the evidence base through a joint agenda for learning and research.

World Vision International and partners are conducting a series of structured evaluations of CFS interventions in various contexts, to document evidence of protective and restorative effectiveness and to identify good practice in design and implementation.


This report presents findings from an evaluation of CFS in three IDP camps in Goma, Eastern DRC.
