Achievers Ghana attends Child Protection Workshop.

Achievers Ghana attended a two (2) Day Workshop on Child Protection organized by Welfare of Children and Youth Association – Ghana. Child Protection is a critical issue and needs critical attention from all stakeholders. Child Protection refers to protection from violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect.

Violations of the child’s right to protection are massive, under-recognized and underreported and are barriers to child survival and development especially in our communities. As a child-centered organization, and specifically for a girl-child, Achievers Ghana saw the need to familiarise itself with the new policies and systems that are needed to help promote the well-being of deprived girls in our various communities.

The workshop found that children who are subjected to violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect are at risk of shortened lives, poor physical and mental health, educational problems (including dropping out of school), poor parenting skills later in life, homelessness, vagrancy, and displacement.

The workshop also shares information on the process of institutional and technical capacity building, the gains made, the challenges encountered. It makes key recommendations towards the achievement of organizational best practices and a culture of human rights among the target partner organizations.

It is our hope that the results addressed by this workshop, will not only be the springboard for future Child rights monitoring and reporting but should also form the basis of further interventions in building the capacities of families, communities, and duty-bearers to provide protection to children.
