Province Policy on Child Protection

27/11/2019: Brazil

To mark the 30th anniversary of ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, being celebrated this November, the United Nations agency UNICEF published a report into the progress and challenges facing children and adolescents in Brazil. In parallel, Brazil has promulgated new laws covering child protection. This is the context in which the Province of Brazil Centro-Norte produced the 3rd edition of its Province policy on Child Protection. This represents a determined response to the XXII General Chapter that invited our commitment to promote and advocate the safety of children.

The work of updating began when the Child Protection Committee, coordinated by Br Carlos Henrique da Silva, appointed a working party to elaborate new directives, based on changes in legislation and the titles of Marist institutions. The working party made the changes in the document, extended the norms, introduced new elements and put more structure around the most frequent violations suffered by children and adolescents.

On 22 November, the working party presented its proposal for the 3rd edition to the Child Protection Committee, who developed a communication plan and a distribution campaign for the new document. The Committee then presented the document to the Provincial Council for its final approval.
