Children Are Precious


RAPCAN partnered with the Lavender Hill community from 2009 to 2012 to implement this ecological, prevention orientated, rights based and community centred model for child protection. It included primary prevention interventions such as communication for social change; secondary prevention interventions such as training of educators and parents; as well as tertiary prevention interventions such as resilience building group work with children experiencing barriers to learning. The project has now been handed over to the community partners and RAPCAN serves as a mentor and capacity builder.
