PROVIDING Legal Education
The organisation empowers adults and children on child protection laws and procedures
through workshops, awareness campaigns and meetings so that they take appropriate action, including
seeking legal redress, where children’s rights are violated.
WELCOME TO JUSTICE FOR CHILDREN
Welcome to Justice for Children, an organisation formed in view of the rising levels of poverty which were accompanied by escalating legal fees making it impossible for many to access justice. The HIV and AIDS pandemic also weighed in with the problems of orphanhood, child headed households and denial of children’s rights in cases like inheritance. Child abuse in all forms was on the increase and the children needed support as they go through the justice system.
A Zimbabwe in which all children have access to justice and enjoy their human rights.
