Starting Up Child Centered Spaces in Emergencies: A Field Manual

Emergencies, such as armed conflict and natural disasters, pose enormous child care and protection challenges to families and communities. To help mobilize communities on behalf of children during and after emergencies, Christian Children’s Fund (CCF) has developed a Child Protection Approach that utilizes diverse tools, including Child Centered Spaces (CCSs) as a means to reach and support children. This approach engages communities to create safe spaces for children and youth to play, socialize, learn, and express themselves in a caring, supportive and normalizing environment.
