Safeguarding Children Workshop

PS4L's Laila Waleed and Yumon Masri facilitated a three hour workshop for PS4L coaches in the north about safeguarding children in education and sports. This workshop was in collaboration with Coaches Across Continents (CAC) and focused on how children are treated in communities.

The workshop looked at the various types of abuse children face, these include; physical, verbal, sexual and emotional. The trainers themselves discussed the cases of child abuse that they have personally witnessed in schools and trainings. They were then taught practically how to address these issues and find sustainable resolves. CAC created 5 different activities for children that can be used to create solutions, discussions and awareness on the abuses that they face.

At the end of the workshop, the trainers signed the PS4L Child Policy. This is an important step for safeguarding.
