Protecting Children with Disabilities from Violence in CBR Projects: Why We Need to Work with a Different Form of Child Protection Policy for Children with Disabilities

Marieke Boersma, Eds.: Disability, CBR & Inclusive Development Journal (DCIDJ), (2013)

Disability, CBR & Inclusive Development, [S.l.], v. 24, n. 3, p. 112-122, nov. 2013. ISSN 2211-5242 Children with disabilities encounter more violence in their lives than their peers without disability. Organisations involved in Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) come across many cases of violence against the children they work with. Many organisations have no policy on child protection since it is not within the scope of their expertise. Others work with child protection policies that are hard to apply in the realities they deal with. Through research done in Ethiopia, with a recent update, the author attempts to show that there is a need for policies in CBR, that follow a community approach rather than an individual approach to child protection.

Children with disabilities in South Africa: The hidden reality

The African Child Policy Forum (ACPF), (2011)

Children with disabilities in South Africa: The hidden reality is part of a multiple-country study conducted by ACPF. The study seeks to analyse how cultural, social, physical and other societal barriers prevent children with disabilities from enjoying their constitutional rights to equality, freedom and human dignity.
