  • Establish working referral systems and structures to protect children from all forms of abuse, violence and exploitation.
  • Bring to book and prosecute all the perpetrators of child abuse without fear of favor
  • Protect children from harmful cultural practices that take away the dignity and self-esteem of children
  • Ensure that children participate in decision making in age appropriate manner
  • Support at risk households by early intervention and local support to prevent neglect, abuse and exploitation
