Taking into account the complex humanitarian contexts we work in, innovative solutions are pivotal to ensuring children living in conflict and fragile contexts are protected. The child protection team works closely with the Airbel Impact Lab research team to ensure that IRC Child protection programmatic approaches are rooted in evidence on what works. By using evidence, cost data and technical expertise we are able to make informed decisions about child protection programming and research. This informs our holistic approach to impact the lives of children, their families ,household and communities as evidence shows children thrive in health communities. By ensuring that children are well-natured, supported and taken care of they are able to achieve their potential at every age.
