Czechia - Country Profile 2022 on children in need
Eurochild recently published a new report, (In)visible children, on the situation of children in need across Europe. Read feedback from our members from Czechia on the European Semester, on EU funding, and on the development of the Child Guarantee National Action Plans and further analysis on child poverty and social exclusion
In our latest report, (In)visible Children - Eurochild 2022 report on children in need across Europe, together with our members we urge governments and decision-makers to support the most vulnerable children and prevent widening inequalities.
Eurochild member, the Alliance for the Rights of the Child Czechia argues that the European Semester Country Report for Czechia does not pay particular attention to the needs of children and subsequent investments in children. The report does, however, mention the need for investments in the green and the digital transition, both of utmost importance for children and young people.
When it comes to funding priorities, Eurochild member, the Alliance for the Rights of the Child Czechia calls the government of Czechia to prioritise investment in providing free meals for all children at schools and providing cost -free pre-school facilities, after-school facilities and extracurricular activities, as these costs are a barrier for the most vulnerable children.
