25 Years for Children

The CAAC mandate is one of partnership and collaboration. Because it takes a village to ensure the protection of children from the harms of conflict.

Partners from all horizons have been supporting the CAAC mandate since its creation 25 years ago.

We invite you to listen to their voices.
