About this project

Child Rights Programme in Lapul sub-county in the district of Pader, northern Uganda. 

This is an area where children are extremely vulnerable due to abuse, neglect and exploitation, primarily driven by high poverty levels and lack of awareness about their rights.

To address these issues, in collaboration with their in-country partner, Oasis Pader, WeSeeHope is working with seven primary schools in Lapul. They are making sure vulnerable children have a structure of peers, adults and safeguarding bodies who stand up for and protect their rights by:

Setting up Child Rights Clubs in the schools: each club is made up of 30 children who learn about their rights and become advocates for change by teaching other children and their wider communities through dance, song and poetry.

Creating Community Action Groups: school teachers and community volunteers are given training in how to identify and deal with reported cases of abuse, and work together to create a safer environment for all children to thrive.
