          Child protection is the safeguarding from abuse, exploitation and violence.  Child protection and safeguarding  is not a singular effort but is a collective response to safeguard children.  Some key considerations include;

          1. Child protection and the safeguarding of children from abuse, exploitation and violence is the responsibility of all.

          2. Know about what the child protection policies are in your country and the child protection practices and policies where children are receiving services and make sure these are respected and implemented.

          3. Follow and respect the key principles of the Convention of the Child. These are, non-discrimination, best interests of the child, the right to survival and development and the views of the child.
