On Tuesday 28 June, the UK Ambassador, Colin Crorkin, signed an agreement on behalf of the Embassy with the Child Protection Alliance National Coordinator, Njundu Drammeh, for the implementation of the 2016/17 Bilateral Programme Fund.

The project, to be implemented by CPA, will establish a child protection system in schools to enhance protection and reporting of abuse, violence and exploitation of children.

The total funding allocated to the project is D569,000 (Five hundred and sixty nine thousand Dalasis).

In his remarks on the development, Ambassador Crorkin said: “We are delighted to partner with CPA in the implementation of a number of activities this year, that are geared towards ensuring that identified schools have child protection policies and mechanisms to enhance protection and reporting of abuse.”

In his capacity as the Youth Coordinator for CPA, Lamin K. Saidy said: “CPA is proud to be associated with this project. The identified activities are crucial areas that we want to address, and we hope that this funding will achieve that. We hope to give it our best to ensure that the desired results are achieved.”
