Nigeria: Child Protection Networks

In partnership with UNICEF Nigeria, BHRC developed a programme to develop the capacity of the Child Protection Networks (CPNs) in Nigeria with a focus on building practical skills in human rights monitoring and case management.

The 'CPNs' are community-based child protection networks, which exists in over half of Nigeria's 36 states. CPN members carry out monitoring, documentation and reporting of child rights abuse cases.
