On 27th July we joined other members of Girls Not Brides Uganda for the Post International Day of the African Child. Having Young People in the room and their voices heard was such a great milestone. They shared about the Challenges they face in school and called upon key stakeholders to come to their rescue especially on regards to corporal punishments at school. Schools are meant to be safe spaces for children to learn, however there are still increasing reports of violence against children in schools. A significant number of both boys and girls have been victims of physical, sexual or emotional abuse within the school environment.


Nothing for Young People without Young People. Their voices are important and must be heard in order to made this world a better place for Children. Our Young Poet and Champion Bonita Murungi presented a Poem entitled “My Favourite Colour is Black” which brough out the importance to respecting Africans and embracing our heritage.


The event brought together different key stakeholders including children, youth, officials from different Ministry Departments, district leaders, religious leaders, private sector such as school administrators and CSOs to reflect, advocate, develop strategies and share learning for approaches required in ending violence against children in schools.
