TOR: Workshop to share and internalize Child protection policy

I. General information

Child abuse is a global problem and can occur in forms of physical, psychological, emotional, and sexual abuse. A child may also be subjected to neglect, forced to live under harmful conditions or become exploited. All though children’s overall conditions in Vietnam have improved immensely over the past two decades there are still areas which need attention. Disparities are widening between the rich and the poor, the Kinh majority and the ethnic minorities, and between urban and rural areas. With support from UNICEF, Vietnam recently developed its own child-specific approach to poverty, based on basic needs like education, health, shelter, social inclusion and protection. This approach led to an estimation concluding that, in 2006 about a third of all children below 16 could be considered poor(UNICEF). Children who live in poverty, or are affected by natural disasters are particularly vulnerable and are often subjects of abuse. The Centre for Sustainable Rural Development (SRD), in compliance with Caritas Australia’s request and expectations, recognizes that a child protection policy is a necessary tool in assuring that any child who may be involved in, or affected by, our work is protected.

The Child Protection Policy (CPP) after construction will be mainstreamed into SRD’s program operation and projects implementation. Therefore, in order to provide sufficient information of practical and specific context and conceptual understanding to its staff, SRD will organize a workshop for sharing, discussing and internalizing CPP contents. The first and second workshops were conducted for SRD staff, Advisory Board member and its partners, where the policy was shared and basic information was provided. After the second workshop, SRD program staff and its project partners also developed follow up plan to mainstream CPP into program implementation.
