||This Toolkit has been produced by ChildHope as a practical learning tool and set of resources for non-governmental / civil society organisations, in particular those in developing countries, working with children. The tools and techniques included here could also be applied, however, to private / commercial and government sector organisations. The Toolkit outlines and explores some of the key principles and issues relevant to child protection, as well as outlining the steps that are needed in order to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate child protection policies and procedures.
The tools can be used by those with overall executive responsibility for an organisation or by a designated person or group within the organisation with responsibility for child protection issues. The Toolkit also serves as background reading on child protection policies and procedures for those who will be involved in developing policies and procedures and their implementation. The exercises have been designed as a learning and reference tool and there are a number of appendices which will serve as further reference tools providing detailed information and guidelines.
