Fourth Congress of the Latin-American Care Leavers’ Network

On 4 and 5 of November, the ISS/IRC's Regional Adviser for Latin America actively attended the Fourth Congress of the Red Latinoamericana de Egresados de Protección, which took place in Mexico City.

During the event, the young care leavers launched their final declaration, which reflects their complex personal processes and the efforts needed to ensure that these young people are protected prior, during and after their placement in care.

The event also saw recent initiatives of various countries in this field as well as the presentation of the process and outcomes of a regional study led by the Network with the support of UNICEF's Office for Latin America and the Caribbean and Hope and Homes for Children.
