Since 2006 we have reached over 400 caregivers with our training programmes in rights based child care. In 2009, with the encouragement of caregivers from partner institutions, we developed and published our caregivers manual ‘Local Champions’ which cuts across the child rights pillars of: survival, development, protection and participation. In 2011 we published ‘Transitions’: self –audit and monitoring tools for early years centres in Nigeria. In 2011 we developed the Good Home Guide™: self audit and monitoring tools for child institutions. In the same year, we developed our ‘Manual for Good Home Evaluators and Report Writers™’.
Our Good Home Scheme™ trains caregivers and educators in child institutions and evaluates the quality of care provided. The Scheme recognises and rewards ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ provision, using rights principles as measures. By these means and through joint delivery of rights based projects, the Scheme promotes continuous and measurable improvement in institutional care, education and protection services for all children.
Sponsor A Child was created in 2003 to promote child welfare in Nigeria by providing a range of child rights based interventions to orphanages, community schools, early years centers and other centers for vulnerable children.
