This documentary produced on the occasion of the 25th aniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) presents the work of several NGOs to combat violence against children in Uganda and uphold their rights.
One of the several projects illustrated in this documentary is IDAY's regional project 'Stopping violence against child domestic workers through regulation and education'. The project sheds the light on an issue that has so far remained under the radar of both the authorities and the public eye, partially because of deeply engrained social attitudes as well as economic conditions conducive to child labour. Governments are the ultimate guardian and protector of human rights, and of the rights of children in particular. The project consists in drawing the attention of the authorities on child right issues, and advocating appropriate measures based on the expertise of the people themselves. It also aims at raising public awareness about the right of children. Lack of knowledge remains a major hindrance to both asserting and enforcing these rights. This project is carried out by IDAY and 14 members / partners in Uganda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and Rwanda with the support of the European Union. It includes: national surveys on domestic workers; advocacy; sensitization; capacity-building of State and non-State stakeholders on child protection.
