HOPE FOR BURKINA FUTURES works to prevent all forms of violence, abuse and neglect towards children. We help make and keep children safe, whether they are refugees, migrants, live in institutions or other forms of alternative care, are exploited, even within their own communities and homes.
To protect children, we work with governments, international organizations, and local community partners to implement progressive laws and policies, change detrimental social and cultural practices, and improve the capacity of communities to protect children.
An important part of HFBF’s child protection work is the participation and leadership of the children themselves. We actively support child clubs and other child-led activities that empower and educate children to keep themselves safe and defend their rights. Involvement of trained and responsible older children as mentors and role models? Need to have an appointed adult responsible to HOPE for accountability. Train the youth leaders
