Child Protection

Child Justice Unit – provides legal representation to children detained or otherwise in conflict with the Palestinian Authority, and also supports child victims of community violence, exploitation and neglect. This unit represents an average of 90 children in Palestinian courts per year and has influenced Palestinian legislation, contributing directly to the Draft Juvenile Law.

Community Mobilization Unit – promotes the participation and empowerment of children so that they can address their own rights situation and become agents for positive change. Current projects of this unit include child led data collection and protection teams in five targeted areas.
