Child Protection

Optimizing Your Child Protection Policy: Five Key Components For Keeping Children Safe

Children are some of the most vulnerable people of any society.  For children outside of parental care, that risk is only compounded.  As people and organizations who interact with children on a regular basis, we have the obligation and opportunity to be part of their protection.  Join this webinar to learn more about creating a child protection strategy that can move your ministry toward keeping children safe.

This is the first in the new CAFO monthly webinar series, Knowledge + Practice, which will translate research into actionable information that OVC care practitioners can implement immediately to elevate the quality of the care they provide.

Presenter:  Mark Canavera is a humanitarian aid and development worker who focuses on child protection in West Africa. He has worked on former child soldier reintegration in northern Uganda, small arms control in Senegal, girls’ education promotion in Burkina Faso, and child welfare system reform in Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, and Benin. He holds Master’s degrees in Peace Studies from Notre Dame and Public Policy from Harvard.
