PROTECTING ON AND OFFLINE
In September 2019, the Government of Peru, which became a Pathfinder in December 2017, hosted a multisectoral consultation event to discuss the development of their National Action Plan to Eliminate Violence Against Children and Adolescents 2020-2030. This event, co-organised by UNICEF and with support from End Violence, brought together representatives from across government, civil society, the private sector, media and international organisations to collaborate on the elaboration of the National Action Plan, which has been designed around key INSPIRE strategies and is due to be launched in 2020.
Peru's National Action Plan is part of a broader architecture of child protection systems and laws, and is oriented to address the government’s national and international responsibility to end violence against children. The effort is being led by the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations and supported by End Violence and other partners to reach the almost 9.8 million children and adolescents across Peru.
In addition, three grantees of the Safe Online window of the End Violence Fund operate in Peru to combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse, including Capital Humano y Social (CHS) Alternativo, Save the Children Peru, and the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC).
