The Government of Uganda, in partnership with Save the Children and UNICEF, on 15th November launched the National Child Participation Strategy that aims to pave the way for child participation in decisions that affect children at national and local levels.
Under the project, the South Sudanese refugees and host community (Ugandans) will plant trees, maintain roads, clear garbage and dig rubbish pits in markets, health centres, schools and child-friendly spaces.
More than 20,000 girls are married every day below the minimum age permitted by national law, according to new research from Save the Children and the World Bank marking the International Day of the Girl.
On October 11, we celebrate girls, a source of joy, energy and inspiration. As we commemorate the day of the girl child, we are reminded of the millions of girls caught up in crises all over the world.
