Protecting children rights in Botswana


Titre : Protecting children rights in Botswana

Pays : Botswana
Localisation : The project was carried out at different levels in Bobonong, Good Hope sub-district, Kanye and Selibe Phikwe.

Durée : June 2015 to June 2017

Botswana signed the Convention of the Rights of the Child and domestic policies and initiatives have been taken to better protect children, including the 2009 Children’s Act and National plan of action for orphans and vulnerable children. However, the quality of services provided to protect children rights still needs to be improved.

The project aims at building on the momentum created by the previous ‘Gaining traction by action’ project and introducing mechanisms to improve the quality of these services and allow better reporting, notably by reinforcing : * the implementation of the Children’s Act through increased evidence-based high-level social policy and cultural dialogue * the institutional capacity of service providers and child protection committees to respond to CSA cases * advocacy and awareness-raising measures on the impact of CSA and the importance of the Children’s Act

Mise en œuvre : Stepping Stones International (SSI)

Total budget : EUR 133 977.00
EU contribution : EUR 127 273.40
