The CRC enumerates articles protecting the social, political, cultural, and economic rights of children. Signatories have a responsibility to protect children’s rights, including the right to life, survival, and development, the right to an adequate standard of living the right to health care, the protection of the family unit, and the right to education.
The SAFE model of child protection draws from both human security and human rights frameworks to foster a more person- and rights-centered analysis for children affected by conflict. The CRC recognizes “the need to extend particular care to the child. Guided by the principles of nondiscrimination, the best interests of the child, survival and development, and participation and inclusion.
In line with the government policy Help Foundation for Victims of Insurgency and Natural Disaster is providing shelters suitable for the relocation of victims
The government agenda for the resettlement and return of internally displaced people (IDPs) in the North-central is fraught with risk. A portion of those displaced by fighting involving bandits militants have already resettled, but some 2.5 million remain uprooted from their homes, with 1.8 million of them in north-central.
- Over the past two years, the federal government has tried to turn the page on the conflict by accelerating IDP relocation efforts. With federal support, closing IDP camps and bringing home refugees who fled to neighbouring states to escape conflict.
- Bandits/Terrorist groups operate near the sites to which some IDPs are being moved, often involuntarily. Lacking security, public services and cash, these people may feel impelled to engage economically with the insurgents. For the sake of both those at immediate peril and state security, authorities should suspend camp closures and focus on getting IDPs the support they need.
This program aims to afford these victims the opportunity of total change and a fresh start, alongside other factors that could help them heal and thrive in new surroundings. While nothing is guaranteed, even with the advantage of change, some of these factors included in relocation programs are steady finances, therapy, schooling/job opportunities, new environment, a fresh start, [sometimes] a new identity and other factors that come with change.
