The rights of the child and the adolescent at the heart of the programmes in Benin!
While the PACOPEs are fundamentally concerned with the rights of the child, particularly the rights of protection, they also address the rights of adolescents and young people. They aim to mobilise families, communities, civil society actors, state actors and public authorities to work together in favour of these rights.
“The enjoyment of rights by children, adolescents and young people and their protection are improved in accordance with national policies in this area implemented at different levels of intervention by the actors who bear the responsibility (States, communities/civil society, families, children). To achieve this, it will be necessary to improve the care and protection of children/adolescents in stable biological or foster families, and to ensure their access to social services.
In addition, young people (15-24 years old) need to be supported towards independent adult life and employment through vocational training and socio-economic integration, by promoting the development of life and work skills.
