Piloting a Child Protection Index in Moldova and Georgia 

Piloting a Child Protection Index in Moldova and Georgia

The project ’Piloting a Child Protection Index in Moldova and Georgia’ was financed by the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Romanian Official Development Assistance, and implemented by UNDP – BRC (the United Nations Development Program – Bratislava Regional Centre) and implemented by the Romanian Federation for NGOs for Child (FONPC), the Moldavian Alliance of Active NGOs in the field of social protection of family and child (APSCF), the Georgian Coalition for Child and Youth Welfare (GCCYW) and ChildPact.

The main goal of the project was to create an evidence based snapshot of government action and gaps so as to better direct efforts and resources by piloting a Child Protection Index in Georgia and Moldova. The Index is providing a benchmark to significantly improve the lives of vulnerable children.
