the Package of Suggestions and agreed to its submission to Minors Commission.
Mr McIntyre noted that the Child Coalition's selected members did a good job
on drawing up of the Package of Suggestions.
3. Future work of Child Coalition. Mr McIntyre noted that future work
of the Child Coalition could develop in various ways. One of them could be cooperating
with the government according to how it is outlined in the diagram of Integrated
Services to Children and Families, i.e. five areas like access, training, resources,
advocacy, and services. Another way of cooperation with the government would
be working with children in different groups such as street children, institutionalized
children, IDPs, children with disabilities, etc. For example, the working group
on development of preschool education can be developed with the Child Coalition.
Mr McIntyre shared that the diagram of Integrated Services to Children and Families
could be used as a tool for project development on cooperation with the government.
