Child protection in Kenya supported by new committees

ICRHK is a member of the Jomvu Sub County Area Advisory Council (AAC), whose main mandate is to provide supervision, planning and coordination for child rights and protection, as well as welfare activities. 
 
The advisory council, whose membership is made up of the Department of Children Services, Education, Health, National Police Service, Judiciary and the CSOs, meets quarterly to deliberate on child welfare matters. During the quarterly meeting, stakeholders were sensitized on child protection and several committees were formed, including advocacy, resource mobilization, planning, policy, and a legal committee to enhance a grass-root 'locational AAC' at community level.
