Informal Grassroots Structures

We ensure that the affected people are always at the forefront of identifying problems and solutions. We work with more than 1,700 volunteers embedded within villages and communities. These men and women of high repute have formed their own informal groups to help them coordinate and address child protection problems holistically. Together, we refer to them as Community Peace Promoters (CPP) and Child protection Committee (CPC).\r\n\r\nFAPAD regularly provides them with tools and materials to enable them effectively mobilise and support their communities on child protection.\r\n\r\nWe train and mentor them in monitoring the status of children’s welfare in their respective communities.\r\n\r\nFAPAD gives them back-stopping support; helping them develop tools for sensitization in their communities, monitoring and tracking of public resources, alternative dispute resolution, counseling and guidance, and making referrals.\r\n\r\nWith CPP and CPC in place, we ensure community ownership, wider coverage and sustainability of our interventions. See what the CPP and CPC are actively engaged in this month.\r\n
