Invitation to 04 March 2021 seminar “The Right of Every Child to Care”

The Child Protection Network is pleased to invite you to join a series of seminars on Children without or at risk of losing parental care

In this series of seven seminars over the coming 1½ year, we invite organizations engaged in international development to discuss and learn more about issues related to child protection and children living in alternative care. You are most welcome no matter if you come from a small NGO, is a volunteer, work in research or come from a large international NGO.

In December 2019, the annual Resolution of the Rights of the Child addressed for the first time ever children without parental care in recognition of the particular vulnerability of this group of children. The purpose of these seminars is to explore how to use the Resolution and the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children in order to safeguard and promote the rights of children who have lost or are at risk of losing parental care.

Ms Chrissie Gale is an international child protection consultant with a Doctorate from the University of Bristol and a long career working for CELSIS, UNICEF, Family for every child, ao.

The seminars offer expert presentations on topics related to the Resolution and an opportunity to discuss and share experiences in order to learn from promising practices and improve the protection and the quality of alternative care.
