"We don’t report because that’s a family affair"

“We don’t report because that’s a family affair” A grounded look at community-based child protection in three rural and urban areas in Kenya.

The Interagency Learning Initiative on Community-based Child Protection Mechanisms and Child Protection Systems and the Community Child Protection Exchange presented a webinar with Mike Wessells, Kathleen Kostelny and Ken Ondoro to discuss recent research and what we are learning about community-based child protection mechanisms in three rural and urban areas in Kenya. The presenters also discussed how these mechanisms link to more formal child protection systems.

The webinar can now be accessed via Youtube.
