“Child Protection and Development, Youth Work experiences across the World” is a two year project funded with the support of the “Erasmus+ programme” of the European Union, under the Key Action 2 “Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices: Capacity Building for Youth in ACP countries, Latin America and Asia”.
The project supports capacity building of youth workers and young leaders working for and with vulnerable children in Italy, Greece, Spain, Senegal, Kenya, India, Peru. It proposes an integrated approach to launch, test and develop an international capacity building program that seeks to expose target groups to various aspects of youth work and community approaches related to “child protection and development”.
The project includes a rights-based approach and is grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). By bringing together a consortium of complementary experiences, the project encourages mutual learning, exchange of good practices and cooperation between different organizations and youth workers from Italy, Greece, Spain, Senegal, Kenya, India and Peru in the field of rights of the child.
