In early 2018, around 50 Ugandan and Tanzanian child protection practitioners came together to reflect on how they can enhance their community-based work for child protection. Two three-day workshops in Kampala and Arusha were organised through a collaboration between the Interagency Learning Initiative on community-based child protection mechanisms, the Community Child Protection Exchange and local partners. The workshops were designed to provide a space for practitioners to reflect on their work as well as to start developing short and long term plans for more sustainable and effective community engagement. The workshops were participant-led with great enthusiasm. Visit the Exchange’s Facebook page and see for yourself!
The Exchange has been a long-time member of the Community Based Child Protection Task Force and will be sharing more information about the event via a webinar. Dates to be circulated soon.
The workshops will be followed up with longer term mentoring by the international and regional facilitation team. If you would like to receive updates about these workshops and other information sign up here.
