Welcome to Child Protection and Education

Child Protection and Education sectors play essential and complementary roles in humanitarian contexts. For both sectors, the central goal is to promote the well-being of children. The protection of children is a cross-cutting duty that boosts their well-being outcomes across all humanitarian responses, including Education. Under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, all children have the right to protection from violence, exploitation, neglect and abuse, as well as to education, among other rights. Quality, safe and culturally responsive education is in itself protective.
Working together across Child Protection and Education sectors in a purposeful and meaningful way not only complements and strengthens the aims of each sector. It also enables us to create broader and more meaningful impacts for, and with, children in crisis-affected communities. These benefits extend far beyond what could be created when the sectors work separately.
This multi-agency training module outlines how Education and Child Protection actors can work together more systematically, based on complementarity, to support children’s well-being in humanitarian contexts.

This e-module is also available in ArabicFrenchPortuguese, and Spanish.
