Keeping Children Safe

Jennifer Martin

We believe that children have a right to be protected from all forms of violence. That's why in addition to our work helping families provide for their children, we have started developing a program to respond to cases of child abuse. Through the program we are helping children, families and communities learn about child rights, and providing protection, support and legal aid to children and their families. This program has already made a difference for one family. Rebecca,  a single parent to four children,  shared her experience with us here:

“...Thrive sensitized us on Child Rights and Child Protection. We learned how to identify an abused child. So one day I was able to tell that my daughter had been abused by a man in the neighborhood. I took the matter to the Police and Thrive gave me financial support for transport and medical examinations. The man was arrested and is in prison, charged with child abuse. We are so glad that Thrive came to support our village.”

We are optimistic that by raising awareness and providing support to families, that we will begin to see more families and community members protecting the rights of children.
