Dear Colleagues,

A special thematic section has been created for professionals responding to concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on children — those who are adapting programming to this particular situation, and supporting and protecting communities and other professionals. This section brings together news, publications, learning and other materials, under nine topics, for us to exchange our ideas and good practices, and to discuss the challenges we’re facing.

The site is available directly at: or under Highlights. Under each topic box we have highlighted the most important resources available, and are providing daily updates of other, useful materials. Please help us to advance this collection with your ideas and suggestions!

In addition, let us suggest our upcoming webinars on topics like: No Child Should be StatelessSocial Norms and Sex Trafficking in IndiaA Knowledge HUB for Child Protection and many others.

If you’d like to hear more from us, please follow our Facebook page and join our group to discuss practical questions!
