We act to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children

In Ukraine, Childhood has five project partners. We work with projects that concentrate on helping children from Roma families gain access to an education, which in turn strengthens them in everyday life and helps to protect them from abuse. Another important aspect of our efforts is to support the creation of alternatives to large institutions. A pilot project offering children who require emergency placement an opportunity to live in a short-term foster family has contributed to legal changes that are now being implemented across Ukraine.
