NNAPES Platform representatives participated at the 92nd meeting of Direction Council of the Inter American Institute for Children of the OAS, Children(IIN) that took place in Bridgetown (Barbados) last September.

This time, the Plataforma was given a spot to present the work carried out at the regional level with representatives of States, Civil society organizations and Marta Santos Pais, Special Representative of the Secretary General on violence against children.

The presentation ended with the reading and distribution (in English and Spanish) of the manifesto produced by the youth at the Plataforma General Assembly in the Dominican Republic.

After the presentation, Victor Giorgi, IIN´s Executive Director, highlighted the importance that each country identifies a focal point to commit to work on, to find strategies at the national level and to work on this issue.

In March, the Platform sealed a cooperation agreement with the IIN. This agreement was signed by Victor Giorgi, director of the IIN and Gonzalo Salles, Director of Gurises Unidos, who was accompanied by Lia Fernandez, both members of the Coordinating Team of the Platform (Photo).

The agreement calls for the implementation of joint projects, exchange of ideas, generate knowledge and promote training on the subject of NNAPEs. While also developing initiatives, both at legislative and public policy levels.
