Child Protection and Social Protection
This programme aims to create an enabling policy and legislative environment. This will result in establishment and implementation of appropriate child protection legislation, policies, strategic plans and budgets for child protection and social protection.
The programme will also address harmful social and cultural practices such as violence, abuse and exploitation of children, women. The programme will advocate for individuals and families demand and benefit from integrated services, especially among socially excluded people, such as children with disabilities and children in rural and peri-urban areas.
This will result in increased birth registration rates and establishment, institutionalization and funding of an expanded social protection system to provide child welfare grants to all vulnerable children and in-crease household resilience in the face of economic shocks or natural disasters, in line with NDP4 commitments.
