Empowering children together with UNICEF Benin

Setting up a child helpline in Benin

How can we better protect children in Benin?

In January 2017, we signed a collaboration agreement with UNICEF Benin to provide technical support to the Government of Benin to set up a child helpline. We will conduct a feasibility study for the development of a child helpline in 2017, develop administrative and technical documentation useful for the operation of the child helpline, as well as hold trainings for involved staff.

All activities planned in 2017 are designed to create a favourable environment for a functional and sustainable child helpline in the country. These preparation activities will be followed in 2018 by setting up the call centre and launching the child helpline service.
