A Guide for Supporting Community-Led Child Protection Processes

The purpose of this guide and its companion tools is to offer a sustainable approach that is community-led. Community-led approaches can take many forms, but all of them feature community power, dialogue, and decision-making, including by children. Community-led approaches generate high levels of community ownership, enable stronger prevention and sustainability, and decrease dependency on NGOs and externally-led child protection. Ultimately, child protection requires an appropriate mix of top-down and more grassroots driven, bottom-up approaches.
