Save the Children is implementing a 12 month project entitled: “Enhance Child Protection services for migrant and refugee children in Libya and Tunisia”, which started in February 2020. The project focuses on child protection capacity strengthening for civil society actors working with migrant and refugee children in Libya and Tunisia. The Child Protection capacity strengthening project is funded by the European Union under the Regional Development and Protection Program (RDPP).
The project focuses on addressing Refugee, IDP and migrant children’s protection needs, and aims to enhance child protection actors’ capacities to deliver quality services to children and to improve national systems and coordination mechanisms through multiple capacity building initiatives, focusing on Case Management, Psychological First Aid, Child Safe Guarding and Safe Programming.
For Tunisia, Save the Children will support national systems and coordination mechanisms to better address individual refugee and migrant children’s protection needs by supporting the mapping of child protection agencies and service providers in the country. The mapping will provide a basis for delineating referral pathways for migrant and refugee children in Tunisia across key locations where the majority of these children are residing or transiting.
Specific Objective: Refugees, IDP and migrant children’s protection needs are effectively addressed by child protection actors in Libya and Tunisia.
For Tunisia, a mapping of child protection services and setting up child protection referral pathways will be undertaken under:
Output 2: National systems and coordination mechanisms in Tunisia are improved to better serve child protection needs.
