Event Information

In Africa, the majority of children in need of care and protection have limited to no access to child protection services or mental health care, in spite of progressive legislation and pockets of excellence in law enforcement, health and the judicial services. Delegates from developing and developed countries are invited to join us to reconnect with our African roots regarding child protection and finding the African routes towards ending cruelty to all our children. This conference aims to gather people who are committed to changing the landscape of child protection in Africa.
