Child Protection

Ensuring health and education opportunities for children while giving them protection from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect. ECI believes in protecting the future of our country by ensuring child protection. To achieve this aim ECI designs and develops curriculum to create awareness in children, their parents teachers and society as a whole. ECI works on advocacy, laws, policies, regulations and services needed across all social sectors – especially social welfare, education, health and security – to support prevention and response to protection-related risks.
