The Activity Catalogue for Child Friendly Spaces in Humanitarian Settings provides materials mainly for facilitators/animators responsible for implementing activities in a CFS:
It features a wide range of easy-to-use resources, including sessions to open, close and review a programme of activities.
It has a set of seven themed workshops which relate to key aspects of children’s psycho-social well-being. These resources provide structured activities that can be used in a sequence over a period of time, but are flexible too so that they can be used as standalone sessions, if CFS modalities vary and/or attendance fluctuates.
Activities are generally intended for children from 6 up to 18 years, with some additional resources provided in the annexes for activities targeted to younger children and older children and adolescents.
The Activity Catalogue for Child Friendly Spaces in Humanitarian Settings is part of The Toolkit for Child Friendly Spaces in Humanitarian Settings was developed by the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support and World Vision International. The toolkit provides a set of materials to assist managers and facilitators/animators in setting up and implementing quality CFS.
