Vision & Mission

Proteknon’s vision is a world in which all children and young people are cared for, protected, and actively contribute to their own well-being and others.

Our mission is to collaborate with others to advance the care, protection, agency, and wellbeing of children and their families through participatory research, innovation, and learning and development.



Together, we work to strengthen child protection systems through collaborative, inter-sectoral partnerships at all levels, from the individual to the family, household, community, state and global. Our competitive advantage is the inter-disciplinary nature of our backgrounds coupled with extensive field work. Our approach is:


  • Rights-based

  • Environmentally-aware

  • De-colonising the humanitarian and development space
