The Child Protection Network (CPN) is a national coalition of Armenian child-centered NGOs. CPN started its operation informally in 2005 with a purpose of contributing to improvement of the quality of services provided to children and families in difficult situations, and to promote new mechanisms and regulations of the child protection system in Armenia. In 2012 CPN was registered as a “Child Protection Network” NGO, a union of non-profit legal entities. CPN has more than 40 member organizations operating in various regions of Armenia. CPN’s strategic directions are advocacy and lobbying for the improvement of laws, procedures and practice in the field of child protection and awareness raising on child rights. CPN played a crucial role in lobbying the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and ensured incorporation of necessary activities in the Action plans of the National Strategy on Protection of Children’s rights. In 2018 CPN was reregistered as a NGO.
