Building capacity for child protection policies and case management

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has merged its Center on Children in Adversity (CECA) with the Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF) to align program, policy, coordination, staff, and budget resources to better assist children made vulnerable by conflict, violence, and neglect.

Data for Impact (D4I) works with CECA to foster positive impacts for these children, working in the areas of policy reform, improvements in case management for children, and monitoring and evaluation of programs to benefit them so that all children grow up within protective family care, free from deprivation, exploitation and danger.

The links below provide information on evaluations, assessments, guidance, and activities managed and implemented by D4I on behalf of USAID’s priorities.
