Joyce2I am a Child Protection Officer at UNICEF Ghana in charge of the roll-out of the behaviour and social change initiatives aimed at creating a safe and protective environment for children within the family and community. This involves coordinating the capacity-building of both Government and NGO partners in child protection across the country related to the manual and toolkits developed for child protection community facilitation aiming to stimulate dialogue and action on a wide range of child protection issues. I am also in charge of promoting partnership with faith-based organisations to prevent violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation of children.  My portfolio also includes child online protection and, therefore, I am responsible for coordinating research and for planning how to address child online safety and protection concerns with relevant stakeholders.

I hold an international Master of Science degree in Social Work obtained from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work from the University of Ghana. Prior to UNICEF Ghana which I joined in August 2015, I worked as a Child Rights Programme Manager at International Needs Ghana, as a Rights of the Child Advisor at Plan Ghana, and as a Senior Programme Officer (Sponsorship) at World Vision Ghana.
