Each toolkit element is described along with printing recommendations below. :
1) The Courage Facilitator Quick Start and Detailed Guide:
The Quick Start Guide is a two sided A3 poster that you can print in colour and laminate. It is useful to use in a workshop to guide you through the Courage engagement process.
The detailed guide contains important information about the design and toolkit elements of the Courage Child Protection Community Engagement Programme. Specific reference is made to the factors which can determine an effective process, for example which facilitator mode to use; time allocation per activity; which tools to use; group size; learning triggers and levels of energy generated by activities. It will show you a) The learning outcomes needed to reach your main objectives, and b) The tools and activities needed to achieve the learning outcomes. This is an an 82 page guide that can be printed in colour or downloaded and read electronically to save costs and paper.
2) The Child Protection Rights & Needs Map:
(This map should be printed A1 in colour on plastic PVC or you can access an A4 puzzle version listed as 2.b which can be printed in full colour A4, cropped, laminated and assembld like a puzzle for workshop usage)
This map illustrates the various developmental stages of a child from 17 to 32 weeks in-utero, all the way to adolescence, from 12 to 18 years. Each scenario details specific milestones and needs that a child may have at this stage of development, which parents and caregivers should be aware of. On either side of these developmental stages are two worlds, one that illustrates when a child’s rights are met, and the other when a child’s rights are not met. You will use this poster to develop a child protection vision with your participants, of a world where the needs and rights of children are placed first in their community or family.
3) The Child Protection Community Map
(This map should be printed A1 in colour on plastic PVC,or you can access an A3 puzzle version listed as 3.b which can be printed in full colour A3, cropped, laminated and assembld like a puzzle for workshop usage)
This map illustrates a typical community complete with formal and informal housing, recreational areas and a range of public services. On the map are a number of different kinds of people, each engaged in conversations or interactions that relate to the world of child protection. These conversations and interactions are illustrated visually using icons that are explained in the legend surrounding the map. You will use this map to discuss child protection in the context of your participant’s communities. This map is used throughout the Courage engagement process to ensure that participants are discussing challenges and solutions in the context of a community rather than at an individual level.
The Child Protection Strategy Maps:
(These maps can be printed A2 in colour on plastic PVC, or A3 in colour on paper/laminated, or you can access an A3 flipped version listed as b. which can be printed in full colour A3 on both sides and flipped on the long side to ensure ease of reading).
The maps illustrate the process or options that need to be considered when implementing a child protection strategy. As with the Community Map, they illustrate different scenarios with relevant role players and the conversations or interactions that they are having. There are 6 different Strategy Maps that you can use individually or collectively depending on your workshop requirements, these include:
4) Prevention & Early Intervention Map
5) Prevention: Sex, Conception & Pregnancy Awareness Map
6) Prevention: Option Counselling Map
7) Statutory Intervention Map
8) Statutory Intervention: Child Abandonment Management Map
9) Child Placement: Adoption Process Map
You will use these Maps to discuss specific child protection strategies with your participants depending on the child protection challenges that you have identified.
10) Child Protection Challenges Cards (Front & Back)
(These cards should be printed using different fronts but the same back A5 in colour)
The cards detail the many different child protection challenges that exist around the world. Not all of these cards will be relevant to each of your workshop groups. You will use these cards to build awareness of child protection challenges and to audit the challenges in each unique environment.
11) Child Protection Empowerment Cards
(These cards should be printed back to back (Empowerment/Disempowerment) A5 in colour). The cards detail seven different ‘disempowerment’ and ‘empowerment scenarios related to child protection challenges. You will use these cards to develop an empowerment strategy that is relevant to your participant’s specific child protection challenges.
