Introducing the Online CAAFAG Community of Practice

The CAAFAG task force has officially launched the online CAAFAG community!

This is an online space on the platform Changemakers for Children where you can ask questions, share experiences, know about events and new resources. You can also create your own discussion with other practitioners. 

This is a restricted community, accessible only to non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, researchers, or independent consultants. 

You first need to register to the Child Protection in Humanitarian Action community of practice and then to the CAAFAG community. Here is the link to register and a short video to introduce the CAAFAG community.
