Activity Recap

From UNICEF Report:

In Belize, with support from UNICEF, a consultation with religious leaders to discuss protective environments for children was held on 17 November. The consultation was one result of a conference held a few days earlier on 'Coordinating the Child Protection System' that was organized by the National Committee for Families and Children. On 20 and 27 November religious leaders included the need to protect children from violence in their prayers, messages and sermons. They also discussed the topic on talk shows and panels and will be working with UNICEF in 2012 to promote positive parenting.
