Rescue & Sense
Be a COPE Champion!
Natural disasters can cause destruction of life and property. Children are among the most vulnerable groups affected and it is therefore important that they are properly empowered with tools necessary to reduce risk.
According to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030), adopted at the third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in March 2015, children have a vital role to play in reducing risk, strengthening community resilience and shaping legislation to better protect against disasters.
COPE has been developed in response to that call to empower children. Each book/booklet focus on one disaster, providing simple messages and tools for children which may one day save their lives.
