The programme aims to advocate for the rights of the children in Pumwani through strengthening the capacity of the community, including children to understand and lobby for these rights. The need for the programmes interventions arose due to the rampant violations of the children rights and abuse which has devastating effects to their development. The programmes interventions ensure that the communities are sensitized on the children rights and the need for children to be raised in a secure environment.

The programme interventions comprise of: creation of child rights awareness to the children, public and other child based service providers, mainstreaming of children participation in all children programmes, strengthening of community structures to address issues of child rights, increasing access to education for children out of school through the satellite schools and clubs and documentation of children caseworks targeting children who are between 6 – 14 years.
