There are many programmes which can help to support the protection and education needs of children in emergencies, and many tools and resources available to help deliver these programmes.
Below you will find guidance on a range of programmes you might use with links to case studies and resources that will help you to run them. These programmes draw on and are informed by the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, INEE Minimum Standards for Education, and IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support.
