Technical approach

The secretariat works with a support from two working groups thus Stakeholders’ Engagement Working Group (SEWG) and Child Protection Working Group (CPWG). Each of the working groups include one staff as a convener, two members from among the members of the executive committee, one ordinary member of the organization and one external expert who is appointed by the Executive committee. SEWG has a role of ensuring compliance of PELO’s operations with legal and regulatory requirements at local level and facilitate community mobilization. CPWG has a role of ensuring child protection initiatives of PELO reinforce the protections guaranteed in National Strategy on ending child violence, conventions on the Rights of a Child (CRC), and Sustainable Development Goals.
