The African Child Policy Forum receives the 2017 ISCI Impact Award

The International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) have awarded one of our partner institutions, the African Child Policy Forum (ACPF), their 2017 ISCI Impact Award. ACPF and Child Helpline International are both members of the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children.

ACPF is a pan-African, independent, non-profit institution based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. They are focusing on policy research and advocacy for African children with a rights-based approach. Working together with governments and human and children’s rights organisations, they aim to improve the knowledge of issues facing children in Africa, monitor and report on the performance of African governments in realising children’s rights, and provide platforms and forums for discussion and policy dialogue. Check out their website here.

The ISCI Impact Award is presented to organisations or individuals who are using child well-being indicators in ways which are likely to have a direct impact on the well-being of children. ACFP are granted this award for ‘outstanding contribution in the lives and well-being of children through the use of child well-being indicators’. A big congratulations to all at ACPF from us!
