Our Child Protection Center offers to our beneficiaries the ‘safe space’ to trust their story, needs, fears but also dreams. It becomes their ‘refuge’ when they arrive tired from a long and dangerous journey which they were forced to undertake. When they get in touch with our Helpdesk, through which our Child Protection Center operates, they meet our team of experts in the field of child protection of children on the move. They actually meet the people who are meant to become their fellow traveler in their complex journey to become visible, protected and empowered. Thus, our Child Protection Center becomes their focal point where they can ask and receive information, empowerment, legal support and protection.
