Mechanisms for the Protection of Children’s Rights

It is the duty of every person to protect their own and other children’s safety, to report any abuse, threats or any other violations of children’s rights to the authorities. Protection of the rights of the child is ensured by all State and local government institutions, educational, health care, social care and cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations providing support and assistance to children, as well as employers.

Example: I worked in an orphanage and saw another employee behaving cruelly towards one of the children. I am not sure who is should turn to – the institution’s management or another institution.
