Child & Youth Rights

It is basically because Nigerian leaders generally believe in safeguarding the best interest of the child that Government ratified both the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the African Union Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (CRWC).

The Act recognizes the rights of children, restores their confidence and self-esteem and improves their status. It will also enable children with disabilities, to enjoy their rights fully, as it provides special measures for their care and protection. All sectors of the society, including government and the people, will benefit from the production of well-rounded and self-confident future leaders.

The issue is that since the Child’s Rights Act was passed into Law in 2003, there has not been adequate information dissemination to the rural areas and therefore lack of knowledge by rural communities’ dwellers, including youth in the rural community schools in Ebonyi State of the existence of the Child’s Rights Law. From pools conducted in most rural communities in the State, up to 85% of both children and adults respectively do not know that there is a Law protecting the rights of the child in Nigeria. This service project will disseminate information to the rural areas on the Child’s Rights Law.

The main goal of our service project is to create awareness and disseminate information to children and adults alike in the rural communities/villages and schools on the Child's Rights Law which was passed into law in Nigeria in 2003.
The goal of this service project and what we want to achieve is to let rural dwellers know that the Child's Rights Law is in existence and to train youth volunteers as agents of information dissemination on the rights of the child and the existence of the Child's Rights Law to check those who may infringe upon the rights of any child both in the rural schools and rural communities.
