All children have the right to protection. They have the right to survive, to be safe, to belong, to be heard, to receive adequate care and to grow up in a protective environment. Millions of children are not fully protected. Many of them deal with violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation, exclusion and/or discrimination every day. Such violations limit their chances of surviving, growing, developing and pursuing their dreams.
Any child can be vulnerable to violations in many places, including the home. A family is the first line of protection for children. Parents or other caregivers are responsible for building a protective and loving home environment. Schools and communities are responsible for building a safe and child-friendly environment outside the child's home.
Child protection is everyone’s responsibility. British Council is a child safe organisation and we have fundamental duty of care towards all children we work with. To raise the awareness among parents and teachers, we are organising the session and delighted to invite you to join us for the child protection sensitisation session followed by a discussion on ‘stress in children and how reading and life skills development may help children deal with this stress.
