Strategic Objective: to improve the protection and well-being of children in the region, particularly those who are vulnerable and at risk of abuse, exploitation, and neglect
GSF’s 5-year strategy for child protection intervention in North-East Nigeria to address the high risk of exploitation, abuse, and neglect faced by children in the region, including child labor, early marriage, and exposure to violence.
The planned interventions include community-based child protection, education and skill-building, psychosocial support, advocacy and awareness-raising, legal aid and assistance, and monitoring and evaluation.
GSF will work with communities to raise awareness, identify protection risks and needs, and promote the rights and well-being of children. It will provide education and skill-building opportunities to empower children, as well as psychosocial support to help them recover from the effects of violence and exploitation. We will also conduct advocacy and awareness-raising activities, provide legal aid and assistance, and regularly monitor and evaluate the progress and impact of its interventions. The implementation of this strategy will involve engagement with key stakeholders, including children, families, communities, and relevant government agencies, to ensure alignment and collaboration. The ultimate goal is to address the root causes of exploitation, abuse, and neglect and promote the rights and well-being of children in North-East Nigeria.
