grounded on addressing the situation of Child Rights and Child protection in Uganda.

The objective of the Training was to strengthen the capacity of Journalists and key selected Child focused Agencies in Child Protection Advocacy, Coverage, and sustained Reporting for increased flow of Child Protection information in the Public domain.


It means that in all aspects of life, children must take a centre stage, because the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) outlines the fundamental rights of children, including the right to be protected from economic exploitation and harmful work, from all forms of sexual exploitation and abuse, and from physical or mental violence, as well as ensuring that children will not be separated from their family against their will. These rights are further refined by two Optional Protocols, one on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography, and the other on the involvement of children in armed conflict.
