Working together to help empower children


At Rambagan, VITAL and CINI have been conducting numerous activities throughout the years to help empower children. By various methods of linkages and referrals to systems of education, protection, health and nutrition the duo have built up a strong convergence among relevant duty-bearers and service providers. Sensitisation has played a huge role in empowering the children and parents of the community. They have been equipped with knowledge on how to defend themselves against vulnerabilities.

Educational support is provided at centres within the community. These centres which are known as safe spaces are easy for the children to avail during the evening time which is the peak hour of vulnerability.

Capacity Building workshops and training sessions have helped to empower children where they are sensitised on various issues of child safeguarding, health and hygiene, career choices, sexual and reproductive health, anger and stress management, leadership and communication etc.

Counselling support has been given to the children to relieve them of the stress and anxiety they have been facing through isolation and stigmatisation.

Creative Activities such as art and crafts, dance, dramatics and music tend to give children new opportunities, a break from the educational curriculum and most importantly a sense of tranquility.

awareness programmes have been regularly conducted to sensitise the children and the community members on issues that have threatening the existence of children within Rambagan.

Children’s/Adolescent’s Group have been formed to act as peer leaders within the community and propagate child protection and empowerment within the community.

Mother’s/Parent’s Group is a group of active guardians involved directly in promoting the safeguarding of children at Rambagan.

Local government has been actively supporting the activities undertaken to make the community a safe zone for children.

Ward Level Child Protection Committee is a convergence among the stakeholders and duty-bearers who have strictly taken up the responsibility of making the community child friendly.
