(UNAMID) – On 3 April 2018, senior Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) officers attended a UNAMID-supported training on protection of children in armed conflict and promoting local ownership of child protection. The one-day workshop, held in Nyala, South Darfur, was organized by the Mission’s Child Protection Unit (CPU) and is part of ongoing efforts to sensitize parties to the conflict on issues pertinent to child rights and child protection. The objective is to minimize grave violations against children including preventing and ending the recruitment of children into armed activity.
