Strengthening the Child Protection System in Mongolia

Save the Children believes that all children have right to be protected from abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation, so that they can enjoy their rights for survival, development and participation.

The Child Protection Program of the Save the Children acts to prevent and protect children, in particular the most vulnerable children, from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation. We provide rehabilitation services and methodological guidance and we work with government to expand and consolidate the national child protection system.

Save the Children has been a leading advocate for banning corporal punishment in all settings in Mongolia over the past decade. When the ban was included in new Child Protection legislation ratified by the Parliament in 2016, Mongolia became one of only 52 countries to achieve complete prohibition of corporal punishment. But there is more to do to change social attitudes and to ensure that policies and procedures are in place to enforce the laws.
