Child Frontiers in Colombia

2015 : [ Universalia ] : Evaluation of Partnerships in Children and Youth Protection Programming

Child Frontiers collaborated with Universalia on a case study evaluation of five DFATD child protection projects. Child Frontiers provided child protection expertise throughout the evaluation and led the Thailand and Colombia case studies. In Thailand, the project Child Protection Partnership was to protect children from sexual exploitation by the growing use of ICT. In Colombia, the Building National Child Rights and Protection Capacity project focused on early childhood to strengthen the rights, protection and well-being of poor and marginalized children and youth. Both projects were implemented by the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD). The Final Report can be accessed HERE.

2018 : [ World Vision International ] : Recruitment and use of children in armed conflict

Child Frontiers supported World Vision International in a research to look at the experiences of children and young people in terms of what has led them to join armed groups as well as what has kept them safe from being recruited. The research reviewed best practices to prevent child recruitment especially those focused on building children’s resilience, taking account of the perceptions of various stakeholders, including children, parents, community leaders and child protection actors. The research drew parallels between the interventions aimed at keeping children from recruitment with those aimed at keeping children safe from other forms of violence in fragile and conflict affected areas. Data for the research came from fieldwork in Central African Republic and Colombia, as well as three case studies focused on the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The findings synthesised into a global report, with recommendations that can be tailored to policy and public audiences in different countries. The Final Report for study can be accessed HERE.
