About us

Nuestra misión

La Alianza para la Protección de la niñez y adolescencia en la Acción Humanitaria (La Alianza) imagina un mundo en el cual los niños estén protegidos del abuso, de la negligencia, de la explotación y de la violencia en situaciones humanitarias. Su misión es apoyar los esfuerzos de los actores humanitarios para lograr intervenciones de protección de la niñez que sean efectivas y de alta calidad tanto en situaciones humanitarias de refugiados como de no refugiados.

Establecida como red mundial de agencias operativas, instituciones académicas, formuladores de políticas, donantes y profesionales, la Alianza facilita la colaboración técnica interinstitucional sobre la protección de la infancia en todos los contextos humanitarios. Establece normas y elabora directrices técnicas para ser utilizadas por las diversas partes interesadas. El Fondo de las Naciones Unidas para la Infancia (UNICEF) y Plan Internacional codirigen la Alianza.
