This participatory toolkit for child protection, GBV prevention and response, and youth engagement was designed for humanitarian and development staff. Children and youth with disabilities are frequently hidden in communities, overlooked by humanitarian programs, and excluded from school and other opportunities. Adolescents with disabilities, particularly those with intellectual disabilities, are often excluded from peer networks that might protect them as well as activities that increase their knowledge about violence, sex, and healthy relationships.
