DEPCIP Project

The aim of the project is to save even one child from any abuse kind and neglect.With this project we will throw a stone to a lake where the abuse and neglect cases do not get the deserved attention.Its wave will spread out to stakeholders and individuals who would like to make a contribution to the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Child abuse and neglect (CAN) which is generally called as “Child Maltreatment” (CM) has been one of the underlying phenomena all over the world for a long time.Even while reading the first line of this project,it is not so difficult to say that lots of children are exposed to abuse and neglect around the world.1 billion children aged 2-17 experienced physical, sexual, emotional or multiple types of violence in 2014 worldwide.We have to note that these are only recorded statistics.According to World Health Organization (WHO), CAN or CM is defined as “all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment,sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child’s health,survival,development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility,trust or power.”

For preventive actions the roles of parents is huge since the child’s first interaction with world starts with the family.Children can not protect themselves from any kind of abuse and neglect:This is the duty of parents to teach them.As the first step of educational background of a child, the pedagogical sufficiency and awareness of family is crucial for the prevention and intervention of child abuse.Knowing the importance of family for child, we aim to increase the awareness of the families against violence towards children and in this context, families are the target group of the project directly and indirectly.Throughout the project; special, innovative and modern techniques will be used to form a bridge of communication for families with separate traditional values for each partner country.
