Our long term goal is to work towards better child protection systems in Iraq. To do this we work directly with professionals to strengthen key services for children. We also work directly with children to empower them, to understand their rights and how to secure them.
The Drop-In Centre provides a safe space for children. It was started in 2002 specifically to meet the needs of working boys who had nowhere to rest in the market.
STEP has provided Child Protection Services through the Child Friendly Space inside the Arbat Refugee camp since 2013.
