The training which was conducted on Child Safeguarding/protection and Peace/Conflict resolution aimed at promoting Reconciliation and peaceful coexistence among people and communities affected by insurgency, also to create awareness on the need of safeguarding and protecting the right of children and vulnerable in the society. The training is to also create awareness among the people on the proper ways to engage stakeholders on the need to domesticate and implement the Child Right Act in Borno and Yobe States respectively.
