Child Protection is a critical aspect that involves preventing and addressing exploitation, abuse, neglect, harmful practices, and violence against children, as outlined by UNICEF. Childhood is a developmental phase in a human’s life that requires particular attention and protection, given the vulnerabilities associated with incomplete physical and mental development. Accordingly, it’s essential to ensure that children receive the necessary protection and care to support their overall well-being and development. The concept of Child Protection is enshrined in both the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Sustainable Development Goals. It is applicable to all children, regardless of their socio-economic status, spanning across nations with varying income levels.
