ARC – Foundation Module 6: Community Mobilisation
This module on community mobilisation has been developed as a resource pack for those humanitarian and emergency workers whose engagement with child protection, brings them into contact with communities. The module aims to provide material that can assist in understanding roles and functions of the community in the realisation of children’s protection rights, the impact emergencies and disasters have on community structures and functioning, and ways and means for agencies to mobilise people and institutions in communities to achieve improvements in children’s lives.
The ARC resource pack provides information and training materials to strengthen individuals’ capacity to address the causes of children’s vulnerabilities, to build effective child protection systems for use in emergencies and long-term development, and to ensure that no activities inadvertently compromise children’s rights or safety.
Foundation modules 1 and 2 cover core concepts such as underlying theory, international instruments establishing child rights, and principles and standards. Modules 3, 5, and 6 cover methodology such as rights-based tools and approaches. Modules 4 and 7 cover cross-cutting rights such as children’s right to be heard, to be included in decisions that concern them and to enjoy their rights without discrimination. Each module includes materials for study, slides, and training materials such as exercises and handouts.
