Project Details

ChildFund Australia commissioned the development of a set of resources to assist their partner organisations to utilise child and youth participation strategies in needs analysis, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The resources developed for ChildFund included a toolkit of participation strategies, a framework to guide program planning for child and youth participation, a collection of case studies and a review of the literature. A three-day train-the-trainer program was provided in Bangkok for ChildFund representatives from Lao, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, Timor Leste and Cambodia.
