Challenge

Child sacrifice is the ritual killing, mutilation or removal of body parts of a child for profit or for sale. Unfortunately this crime has been growing in Uganda. Research has revealed that close to 3000 children are believed to be sacrificed each year in Uganda. Eliminating child sacrifice is a strategic priority for many large-scale NGOs. Surprisingly however our behavioural change programme is the only planned programme of work to address child sacrifice prevention.

Solution

The Programme’s goal is to eliminate child sacrifice by changing the behaviours that are sustaining it. We will conduct a schools workshop to over 15,000 students to help them protect themselves from child sacrifice and take action to prevent it.

Long-Term Impact

We will educate over 15,000 youth - raising awareness of the harm caused by child sacrifice, demonstrating why it is legally, morally and socially unacceptable. We will also provide these 15,000 youths with the tools to protect themselves from harm.
