Child Protection

 

The street represents the only educational path for many children and at the same time it represents a broad and fascinating place even though often scary and terrible.  

This is the reality of the street children in Nepal, Romania, Nicaragua, Somalia but also of some big European cities with their non accompanied minors. 

In these contexts GRT's objective is to defend children's rights and wishes in the first place and then propose a rehabilitation. 

Nepal

In Nepal GRT has been dealing mostly with ethnic minorities and child protection by working closely with local partners. At the same time, after having carefully examined the needs of the country, GRT has also worked with topics such as violence against women and traffic of human beings, especially women and children. The work has mostly been focused on the causes that bring people to be victims, like extreme poverty, family breakdown, domestic violence or gender discrimination. 

GRT has then supported Nepal during the earthquake of 2015 as well as helping the country with the project HelpLine, to defend and promote children's rights in different contexts such as family, school and community.
