Shanty Penlaana Kock, one of the spokes person of the training stated that TLM is a social economy institution that have good partnership with foreign donors, is obligated to integrate each of its work program with donors’. One of the programs is children protection.
“the idea came from Uniting World. TLM cooperate with sponsor institutions that necessitate TLM as their partner to participate in child protection campaign. And I feel that it is really important for TLM staff because they meet and socialize with society, including children in field every day. So, by providing them adequate knowledge of child protection regulation, they will practice it in the field by themselves. Aside from that, we really hope that staff who already got the training will never practice child abuse whether in their work or in their daily life,” said Shanty.
One of the prospective staff, Efraim Kadja Pau said that he is so happy with the training because they are prepared with some beneficial materials, not just work manual but also social material so they will be more ready to socialize with society.
“of course we are so happy with this training because we are taught how to protect children’s rights, to keep them away from many types of abuse, whether it is physical or physiological so they can freely play and study to grow as good nation’s next generation. So as a good staff, this material is a good provision for us to serve the public and also to protect ourselves and avoid child abuse in society,” said Efraim.
Children Protection Training has been conducting since 2013. This training is for all KSP TLM and TLM foundation staff, whether old or new staff with a hope that whoever works in TLM can be the agent of children protection in public, started from their own family to help reducing child abuse that often occurs among society.
