Bogotá Welcomes a Regional Workshop to Explore Key Skills for an Inclusive Support of Vulnerable Children

From May 28th to 30th, the international Bureau for children’s rights organized a Regional Workshop in Bogotá.  

This event brought together child protection experts and professionals from various South American countries, such as Honduras, Costa Rica, Colombia and Peru. The primary objective was to collaboratively explore the key skills necessary for child protection professionals to provide inclusive support to vulnerable children and teenagers. This workshop is part of an initiative that started in 2023 in the Ivory Coast, aiming to develop a competency framework for inclusion through workshops that brought together representatives from nine African countries.  

Together, participants representing governments, civil society organizations, and research centers worked on case studies and collaborative sessions to identify the key skills for inclusion. Their discussions allowed for planning the next steps in the process, and in defining future commitments. 

This workshop not only increased the exposure of our mission for children’s rights, but also solidified our commitment to improving inclusive practices within child protection systems in Latin America.
