Upholding Child Rights


Salim Matendo, 12, (left) and other members of a Ugandan child protection committee wait to address fellow pupils about child rights and protection.

Salim Matendo  was among 18 pupils from three schools trained by World Vision in child protection in 2014. Each of the three schools now has a child protection committee which familiarizes other children with issues of child abuse and exploitation and what to do about them.

Students, parents, and community leaders are working together to uphold and enforce child rights and child protection in their community. This follows World Vision’s information campaign and strengthening of structures including child protection committees. Cases of child abuse, which were numerous before, have now been reduced.
