Dear Colleagues,

February continues to bring meaningful news and informative publications, with many organisations and programs releasing their 2019 reports on topics including: de-institutionalisation, corporal punishment, mental health support, and threats to online safety. 

This newsletter brings you the highlights of the past few weeks, information about exciting upcoming webinars, and attractive vacancies in the region.

We’d also like to use this opportunity to call attention to the Day of Social Justice and celebrate our differences within and among nations, age, gender, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability. Let's try to advance social justice by promoting the rights of all within these groups, and especially children, in our actions and programs!

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

Yours,
The Child Protection Hub Team
