Child Protection at FDR
The Colegio Roosevelt Child Protection Policy is based on international law and on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child of which Peru is a signatory. The two key articles of this UN Convention state the following:
Article 19 - Protection from abuse and neglect
The State shall protect the child from all forms of maltreatment by parents or others responsible for the care of the child and establish appropriate social programs for the prevention of abuse and the treatment of victims.
Article 34 - Sexual exploitation
The State shall protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse, including prostitution and involvement in pornography.
