Challenge

Despite commitments to international statutes such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) that Uganda ratified in 1989, the domestic Violence Act (2010), Employment Act (2006) that out laws acts of Violence Against Children in schools; Violence Against Children has increased by 65% in Arua.

The children will be empowered through strengthening of Child Rights Clubs (CRCs); provide letter link boxes to aid reporting of cases of Violence Against Children; conduct legal aid clinics to create awareness; provide basic needs to the victims of Violence Against Children (VAC); and provide trainings to children, teachers, parents, opinion leaders, religious and cultural leaders in life skills, prevention of VAC, alternatives to corporal punishment, gender mainstreaming and record keeping.
