Criteria for Review

In order for an application to be considered valid, each of the essential criteria (Annex A) must be met. Valid applications will be reviewed by an independent roster of experts who will carry out a detailed review of the entire application, marking it for its general quality and potential impact. In addition to an overall narrative and recommendation, the reviewer will be asked to comment on four key areas.

  • Demonstration of contextual challenges and the need to intervene – Proposals should be grounded in rigorous and documented evidence, clearly outlining the need for action at the national, sub-national or transnational level.
  • Level of co-ordination at the national or transnational level – Co-ordination between key actors at the national or transnational level is key to delivery of effective OCSE programming.
  • Likelihood of Impact and Results – In this category the reviewer will need to make a judgement of the overall probability of successful delivery of the program and the chance that the predicted impact and results will be realised. With this in mind, the reviewer will also be asked to identify whether there is a well-articulated monitoring and evaluation plan and whether the program is likely to deliver value for money.
  • Alignment with the WePROTECT Model National Response – Proposals should recognize the WePROTECT Model National Response (Annex B) and demonstrate alignment with their interventions.

June 18th, CPCR conducts a workshop for selected teachers from Child Protection Schools in Chiangmai Province. ‘The Teacher Classroom’ is a program that CPCR Child & Family Development Unit develops for teachers to gain more confident and be able to delivery an effective teaching method to their students. Last year, CPCR has introduced ‘the Positive Discipline’ to Child Protection School Program. This technique has gained a positive feedback from many teachers. However, some teachers believe that this method would be able to change student’s behavior completely. Since some students still act with the same manner, some teachers has gave up and gone back to use the old technique – such as punishing students by using a stick – to control their classrooms. CPCR believes that using ‘the Positive Discipline’ will be beneficial for students and teachers. ‘The Teacher Classroom’ would train teachers to build a good environment in the school.

CPCR: The Little Star’s story

CPCR would like to share the story of a young girl who is about to leave the assessment and treatment shelter, Baan Oun Rak. We would like to call her “Dao”.

Dao came to Baan Oun Rak when she was eight years old. She was a neglected child left on the street. She had no family and nowhere to live. The state government worked with CPCR to provide her protection and transfer her to Baan Oun Rak.

IMG_6615   IMG_6614

In the beginning, her life at the shelter was not easy. In her physical and mental assessment, the psychiatrist discovered she had a learning disability. She entered CPCR’s treatment therapy program. She made great improvements and moved in with a foster family. But when taking care of a child victim of abuse, neglect, and exploitation, recovery often takes longer than expected. Some symptoms may not be apparent at the shelter, but come to the surface when a child lives in normal circumstances. This was the case for Dao.

CPCR worked with her foster family, but she ultimately had to come back to Baan Oun Rak. At that time, her mental condition was down because all she wanted was a family. CPCR helped Dao overcome her obstacles. She participated in many therapies, including CPCR’s group art program and drama club, and attended school with the other children. She was elected as a leader in many activities, including coordinator of CPCR’s annual children’s drama performance. she improved physically, mentally, and socially.

Now, Dao is 18 years old, and she’s going to live on her own for the first time in a dormitory. CPCR would like to congratulate her. She just graduated from the upper secondary school, Mathayomsuka grade 6, and plans to go to a university. She recently met with CPCR staff to show them her graduation certificate.

First, Dao would like to thank everyone at CPCR, who gave her support and a new chance at life. When she was disobedient and didn’t listen to their advice, they never got mad at her and were patient, listened, and looked after her. Sometime, when Dao was ready to give up and didn’t want to go to school, CPCR members were there to motivate her and show her the importance of education.

Inspired by her very own school teachers, Dao now wants to be a teacher. When she achieves her goal and has a salary, she promises that she will donate to help other children at CPCR. While she doesn’t have a biological family, she knows she has the support of CPCR staff and teachers at her school. She would like to thank everyone who has helped her along the way.

CPCR would also like to thank everyone for their generosity. All CPCR supports are part of her success. Dao will leave CPCR soon, but her story has inspired us and many children at Baan Oun Rak. One child considers Dao her idol, and she now wants to finish school too. CPCR would like to congratulate Dao on her success and hopes she can make her dream come true. Dao is CPCR’s star.

’Dao,’ in Thai, means ‘star.’

CPCR follows up the performance of child protection officers in sub-district level. December 24th, Ms. Wassana Kaonoparat, CPCR Executive Director, meets the local officers from Suphanburi Province. Since 2014, CPCR has worked with Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and UNICEF to conduct a training program for state officers in sub-district level from 10 provinces. The program aims to strengthen existing mechanisms under the Child Protection Acts and build the capacity of local administrative staff. This meeting, CPCR wants to review the performance and share the experiences. CPCR also find the solution if they find a barrier during the operation. The result shows a positive development. The local officers from Suphanburi Province can assist children and work with families, schools and communities to support the case very well. CPCR has a high hope that these local officers would develop their skills and extend the program to other areas in the future.
