Child Help Desks
Story of hope: impact of our project on Fatu
This story of hope is about Fatu. He is a beneficiary of the project 'Child Help Desks' being carried out by ANPPCAN and KidsRights in Liberia.
Together with local organization ANPPCAN KidsRights will improve the implementation of the national Children’s Law of Liberia and increase access to justice for children. We will build two Child Help Desks in Liberia that children can contact to report cases of violence. The Child Help Desks receive and identify cases of violence against children, and will make sure that these will be handled in accordance with the national Children’s Law.
