Community Based Initiatives: Building capacity of community groups and families in care and protection of children
This is a PowerPoint presentation by Patrick Onyango Mangen from the April 2014 Symposium “Supporting Families, Building a Better Tomorrow for Children: The Role of the Social Service Workforce” hosted by the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance. The presentation provides an overview of cascading and multi-tiered approaches to skilling the social service workforce in child protection. It provides a case study on workforce support to community-based service delivery structures in Somalia, an example from Karamoja, Uganda that incorporated an accredited university certificate in the training of para social workers to better support community driven child protection mechanisms and an overview of a jointly developed and accredited curricula to train community based caregivers across multiple regions of Uganda.
