Abstract or Description

This guidance on training in children and young people’s participation (CYPP) was first developed by Development Focus when working with a range of government and non-government organisations in the UK and internationally. It has then been applied and built upon by ChildHope and their local partners in different organisational, political and cultural contexts. Experienced facilitators who work with children and young people in partner organisations were trained and mentored by ChildHope, so that they could plan and deliver children and young people’s participation training to core staff, as well as adults and children from the communities they work in.
The training was piloted by ChildHope with their partners Organisation for Child Development and Transformation (CHADET) in Assela, Ethiopia and with Street Child of Sierra Leone in Makeni, Sierra Leone. This training was delivered to staff, men, women, girls and boys for a period of five days and culminated in the development of a local action plan for children and young people’s participation. Experiences were also added during training with Proceso Social, Calandria, Cesip and Amhauta, ChildHope’s partners in Peru.
