This toolkit is designed to help ensure children have the opportunity to participate in the identification and analysis of issues and in the planning and implementation of solutions. It can also help programme staff understand child protection problems/strengths; assess situations; develop and evaluate programmes; develop protection measures, networks, and response mechanisms; and find programmatic gaps.

The tools should be used in sequence: 

  1. Identification of risks/ problems/ issues and resources;
  2. Prioritization of these risks/ problems/ issues c) analysis uncovering the root-causes of risks/ problems/ issues; and
  3. Planning for solutions.

At the end the toolkit there is a series of example questions which can be used by facilitators to probe and uncover deeper social issues affecting children.
