Promote Children Participation in Kenya



Promoting opportunities for 240 children to participate in decisions affecting them and their communities and inspire them to actively engage and strengthen their capacities to act as children's rights advocates.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Only 1 out of 6 children in Kenya are safe. 9 out of 10 children from poor household fail to complete their basic education while between 10,000 and 30,000 children are caught up in commercial sex trade. The post election violence brought death, injuries and displacements to thousands of children. 240 Orphan and Vulnerable Children through participatory programs like Child Voices conferences & advocacy forums will engage leaders to make and implement child friendly policies and programs.

How will this project solve this problem?
