Welcome to the RISE Learning Network!
Hosted on Changemakers for Children, this is a space for our community members to connect with each other, share information, and generate knowledge.
About this community of practice
The RISE Learning Network aims to promote and facilitate learning on Recovery and Reintegration (R&R) approaches that improve outcomes for children and adolescents affected by sexual exploitation (CSE).
The sexual exploitation of children is a global yet still largely hidden problem. It has devastating long-term impacts on children’s physical, mental and reproductive health and social wellbeing, as well as their education and ability later to find work and safe relationships in supportive communities. It can leave them stigmatised, ostracised, without support or choices and vulnerable to further exploitation. Improving outcomes for children affected by CSE requires a holistic, flexible and individualised response.
The RISE Learning Network aims to increase knowledge and strengthen practice and policy by developing an open, vibrant, locally accessible global learning network. That's why our community is now hosted on Changemakers for Children, a global community of local changemakers working with vulnerable children and families.
