Find a Tool

This Guide is designed to allow you to move through it at your own pace, making your own decisions about which tools will be most helpful to you. We encourage you to consider the goals of each tool, prioritize, use, and reuse those you find helpful.

Make the tools your own

Each country has developed an action plan that provides a vision for ending violence against children. There is no standard format for action plans across countries—some are very detailed and concrete, while others are more general. Because each country’s action plan is unique to their own needs, priorities, and capacities, this Guide is designed to be flexible. It highlights the key decisions needed to adapt and scale the INSPIRE approach and offers tools to collect and reflect on the information needed to make those decisions. We invite you to use this Guide in any way that works best for you. Use some of the tools, or all of them, in any order that makes sense to you.
