EXAMPLES OF POLICY CHANGE ACHIEVEMENTS IN 2020
Central African Republic: SOS Children’s Villages actively participated in the development of the Child Protection Code, adopted by the National Assembly in June 2020. Based on our advocacy efforts, the Code also sets standards for the provision of alternative care.
Latvia: In Latvia, we engaged with the Ministry of Social Affairs to develop legislation on foster care. The legislation addresses the role of NGOs in providing foster care and legally defines this new type of social service.
Vietnam: Our member association in Vietnam influenced a range of policy processes, including contributing to six national action plans for child care and protection as well as establishing a formal three-year collaboration with the country’s Department of Child Affairs.
