Why stakeholders need to standardize and institutionalize child protection training

In Africa and as in the rest of the world where conflict is prevalent, children suffer greatly due to the effects of wars. They are injured, abused, used as child soldiers, killed, among other injustices. Save the Children through the Strengthening Child Protection in African Union Peace Support Operations in East and West Africa project, has been working to ensure that children are protected during such trying and difficult situations. The project is working to standardize and institutionalize mandatory child protection training for the African Standby Force to ensure that child protection and rights are put at the forefront before, during and after conflict.

Watch this insightful YouTube video showing how the project is making progress in entrenching child protection within the African Standby Force. The video was captured at the workshop to review and validate the child protection training toolkit in Accra on  22-26 February 2016.
