Challenge

The DSWD reflected a total number of 4,573 child abuse cases in their February 2011 report. Quite a number of unreported cases of abuses on children do not reach the police and the courts due to lack of awareness and stigma. Victims suffer tremendously from the negative impact of the abuse experiences. The DILG reports that only 35% of the Barangay Councils for the Protection of Children (BCPC) who are the vanguards for child protection in communities are functional.

Solution

As problems affecting children are perpetuated by people's traditional practices and value system, the Project aims to build a "culture" of social protection for children in high risk communities through a comprehensive package of preventive actions and early interventions as well as building the capacity of community members in setting up their own preventive alert systems so as to ensure the utmost protection and development of target beneficiaries.

Long-Term Impact

By building the capacities of community members especially children in creating an enabling environment for the protection and development of children in high risk urban poor communities, incidence of child abuse, exploitation and trafficking will be eliminated.
