The West Africa Network for the Protection of Children (WAN), in collaboration with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has started a process of stakeholder deliberations aim at adopting and promoting the new West Africa Signage of Child protection in Ghana and in the sub-region.

The adoption and use of the signage, in the sub-region, would depict child protection points in the region, a major step towards the rendering of the West African space, safe for children and the youth.

The signage is a circular galvanised sheet depicting the logo of ECOWAS, the flag of the country, two raised palms encircling a boy and a girl with a bright sun in the background, and a text that read: “You are Safe Here”.

The harmonised child Protection Signage, is premised on the fact that some children may find themselves in danger in other countries and may not have nowhere to turn for safety.
