An Update From Karamoja, Uganda
I’ve just returned from Uganda, where I visited Karamoja, a region in northern Uganda where Children on the Edge has begun to replicate our successful Child Protection Team model.
Children here are living on the edge of society, with little support. Read about how we're supporting communities here to better protect their children.
November 20th is World Children’s Day. This year's theme is ‘inclusion, for every child’. Across all our programmes, we ensure that children are included and given space to participate, so that they can realise their rights and thrive. Read on to see this in action through our innovative digital education programme in Bangladesh.
India is home to the largest number of child brides in the world. Dalit children, as members of the lowest caste in India are especially at risk of child marriage and face discrimination at almost every level. Read about what we are doing to tackle child marriage and create protective environments for the Dalit children we work with.
Child Rights Clubs in Loco, Wandago and Masese I slum communities in Uganda give children the opportunity to express themselves and play an active role in their communities, campaigning and advocating for change.
Working closely with the adult members of the Child Protection Teams in their communities, the focus for the Child Rights Clubs in recent months has been on education and encouraging children to get back to school after lockdown. Find out what they have been up to below...
Children on the Edge is a Child Rights organisation, but what does that mean? What does a child rights organisation do?
Children on the Edge works in coalition with local communities in some of the toughest places in the world, transforming the lives of marginalised children by creating protective environments where they can safely live, play, learn and grow.
It will come as no surprise that our focus in 2020-2021 has been responding to the coronavirus pandemic and it’s devastating effects in every area where we work.
