Mali mobilizes for the protection of children’s rights
The PACOPE in Socoura is developing in a difficult context. The security crisis and intercommunity conflicts have slowed down socio-economic activities in the region.
The PACOPE programmes set up in West Africa are based on an approach that empowers families by avoiding dependence on SOS support to cover the needs of children.
By helping parents/guardians to develop their own income-generating activities and by offering them advice and moral support throughout the intervention, the programme increases their awareness, decision-making power and financial capacity. Parents/guardians are empowered to meet their children’s basic needs (e.g. paying for school, health, food, etc.) and to respect their rights to survival, development, protection and participation.
