Action plan children's right Saba


In May 2013, UNICEF presented six reports by the title “Children of the Kingdom: rights of the child in the Kingdom of the Netherlands”. Per country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the reports discussed the children’s rights and compared the situation with the International Convention on the Rights of the Child. One point that clearly came forward is that it is important to cooperate better, and that is why Aruba, St. Maarten, Curaçao, and the Netherlands: Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba, decided during the Kingdom Conference in 2014 to work together. The ‘inter-country taskforce’ was established for this purpose.
The inter-country task force drew up an action plan of which a first draft was presented to the governments of the countries. The Public Entity of Saba provides input for the action plan of the Netherlands via this Action Plan that’s focused on the Saban situation. This Action Plan contains proposed actions that have to be taken to improve the children’s rights situation on Saba. The actions are focused on the 5 key points of attention that were defined by the inter-country taskforce:
1. Focus on the family by working in an integrated way;
2. Violence against children;
3. Safety net;
4. Role of the parents in raising their children;
5. Conditions and infrastructure.
