Safeguarding in the context of aid has recently received heightened international attention. Emerging literature has not yet investigated the extent to which responses are evolving in the best interests of the child, in line with children’s treaty-based rights. This article makes a unique contribution by applying a child rights lens to safeguarding efforts, with a focus on the least-developed countries in Africa. The article suggests that a rights-based approach provides for a more nuanced and contextualised response. To support sustained and consistent progress, efforts should go beyond intra-organisational policy and self-regulation. There is a need for increased investment in child protection systems and use of child rights law monitoring mechanisms to encourage effective government oversight of non-government organisations in contact with children.
