Migrant children from Myanmar (Burma) living in Thailand are particularly vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, and neglect. The IMPACT project addressed these vulnerabilities through a comprehensive child protection system that equally emphasized both prevention of and response to child abuse, exploitation and neglect. World Education worked with a network of organizations to implement the IMPACT project, including the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Committee for Protection and Promotion of Child Rights (CPPCR), and Social Action for Women (SAW).
World Education worked with communities to raise their awareness of threats to child protection. World Education also partnered with CPPCR to establish a child protection network and develop a referral and case management system in which all relevant actors work together to provide a solid, timely and quality response for children according to best practice standards. Additionally, World Education developed CPPCR’s organizational capacity and provided technical advice and institutional support.
