This paper reviews some of the challenges we can expect to face in the near future from conflict, extreme weather events, poverty and population growth and suggests that humanitarian response alone will be unable to sufficiently meet those challenges.

Resources for Safe Spaces for Children in Humanitarian Settings

Safe Spaces for children, including Child Friendly Spaces (CFS), are interventions used by humanitarian agencies to increase children’s access to safe environments and promote their psychosocial well-being. Some Safe Spaces may focus on informal education or other needs related to children. However, all try to provide a child-centered place where children can come together to play, relax, express themselves, feel supported, and learn skills to deal with the challenges they face.

Be the Change! Leave No Care Leaver Behind!

Through two projects designed by SOS Children's Villages, findings show that care leavers experience a range of emotions when leaving their place of care: a mix of happiness and expectations of freedom and independence along with feelings of loneliness, anxiety and, sometimes, fear. Care leavers have concerns about their protection, inadequate levels of support, the unsatisfactory manner in which support is offered, lack of access to services, and insufficient participation in decision-making.
